Police search for armed robbery suspects caught on camera in Tampa

TAMPA — Police are looking for three robbery suspects caught on a store surveillance camera using a stolen credit card.

The robbery happened at about 2 a.m. Wednesday in Ybor City. Police say a 23-year-old man was walking to his car near N 17th Street and E 11th Avenue when a dark blue car pulled in front of him.

A woman and two men got out of the car. Police said one of the men was armed with a silver and black semiautomatic handgun and told the victim, "You know what time it is," demanding the man's wallet and cell phone.

The man complied, and the group drove away.

About 12 minutes later, three suspects were spotted on camera at a Walmart at 1505 N Dale Mabry Highway using the victim's credit card.

Police described the female as white, 5 feet 4, 120 pounds, with brown hair braided close to her head and curly hair to her shoulders.

One man is 6 feet 2, 230 pounds with a dark complexion and goatee. He was wearing a white T-shirt and orange-and-white tennis shoes.

Police said the third man, a black male, is about 5 feet 11, either bald or with close-shaved hair, and a medium complexion. He was wearing dark clothing.

Anyone with information can call Tampa police at (813) 231-6130.

    Well, that didn't take long.

    After only three movies, the Lego franchise is already a shadow of its original self, less irreverent and go-for-broke bricky. The watering down of an ingenious formula comes with The Lego Ninjago Movie, the sort we expected all along from plastic construction toys.

    Hurricane Irma brought a hiccup to twice-weekly curbside trash service in Pasco County.

Pasco officials are asking for patience about the slow pace of residential trash service from private haulers. In some areas, trash hasn't been collected since Friday, Sept. 8, because of the volume of waste left after Hurricane Irma.
