Largo police seek two who burglarized nature park offices

LARGO — Police are asking the public's help in identifying two people who burglarized the offices at George C. McGough Nature Park on Friday.

According to Largo police, the offices at 11901 146th St. N were broken into sometime between midnight Thursday and 3 a.m. Friday.

Surveillance cameras show two people wearing masks and gloves. They stole multiple undisclosed items.

One of the suspects was wearing a dark-colored, long-sleeved shirt with "G Unit" across the chest. The other had a dark-colored, long-sleeved shirt similar to the Affliction brand.

The park made headlines earlier this year when someone cut a hole in the enclosure of the park's resident great horned owl, JR, and the owl escaped.

Police ask that anyone with information about the suspects or the crime call Largo police Detective C. Keeler at (727) 586-7475.
