Police search for Tampa camera shop burglars

TAMPA — Investigators are looking for two men who smashed through a wall at a photography shop and took some $10,000 in equipment.

The burglary, which was captured on a store security camera, happened about 8 p.m. Saturday at North Tampa Photography, 1020 W Busch Blvd. The store had been closed for about three hours when the burglars struck.

According to Tampa police, the burglars smashed a hole in a concrete block wall behind the business. Then they came inside, wearing masks and carrying a garbage can they used to take cameras and supplies.

Anyone with information about the crime was asked to contact Crime Stoppers at 800-873-8477. Anonymous tips leading to an arrest may be eligible for a cash reward of up to $1,000.
