Tampa police search for pizza parlor burglar

TAMPA — In less than three minutes, a burglar broke into a pizza shop, stole a safe and fled.

Now police are asking the public for help in finding the person who committed that crime Sunday morning.

Surveillance video captured a person in a blue sweater with a gray hood and black gloves at 5 a.m. using a crowbar to pry open the front door to Westshore Pizza at 4802 W Bay Court Ave.

The burglar went behind the counter, removed a box, then searched for another box and threw that one over the counter. The burglar hopped over the counter, picked up the two boxes and left.

Police said one of the boxes was a fire safe and that the person drove away in a white Ford F-150.

Anyone with information about this crime can contact police at (813) 231-6130.
