St. Petersburg police seek two men in animal clinic burglaries

ST. PETERSBURG — Police are seeking two men who twice burglarized a local animal hospital.

Security video from Central Animal Hospital, 4801 4th Street N, captured images of the men, who stole cash, electronics, cameras and a Gibson banjo.

On May 9, a man wearing black gloves, a light-colored baseball cap, long-sleeve T-shirt and jeans entered the animal hospital through the back door. Once inside, he searched the cash drawer and several other drawers inside the business.

The man returned July 8, wearing a two-tone baseball cap, black T-shirt with what may be a Harley Davidson logo and jeans, and again tore through drawers looking for cash, police said.

Police believe he was aided by another man captured on video breaking into the front door during the July burglary.

The first man was described as white, between 5-feet 6 and 5-feet 9, 160 lbs in his 20s, according to police.

The second man was described as white with a medium build who wore a white shirt and light shorts during the July break-in, police said.

Police ask anyone with information about the suspects or the burglaries to call Detective Troy Harper at 727-893-4199, or the Tip Line at 727-892-5000.
