Investigators release video of Oct. 28 Brandon Kmart robbery

TAMPA — Hillsborough sheriff's investigators are looking for help identifying a man who snatched a stack of bills from beside a Brandon Kmart cash register, as well as the woman who appeared to accompany him.

The agency posted video of the Oct. 28 robbery on its website Thursday. The incident happened just after 9 p.m.

The man was described as 5-feet-6 and 180 pounds, and 20 to 25 years of age. He wore a red baseball cap, white T-shirt with a design on the front, and blue jeans.

The woman was about 5-feet-2 and 120 pounds. She wore a black and white striped T-shirt.

Both suspects are black and 20 to 25 years old.

Deputies say the two approached the customer service counter to make a purchase and were directed to an open register. They went to a checkout lane but the man returned twice to the service desk, the second time grabbing a banded stack of cash.

Anyone with any information is asked to call the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office at (813) 247-8200; or, to be eligible for a cash reward, call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-873-8477, report anonymously online at or text "CSTB plus your tip" to C-R-I-M-E-S (274637).
