Tampa police seek two men in Auto Zone, Family Dollar burglaries

TAMPA — Police seek two men suspected of breaking into two stores and stealing soap, deodorant, detergent and Armor All products.

Detectives described the first man as black, 35 to 45 years old, and wearing a striped, dark blue and white Polo-style collared shirt, blue jean shorts and tennis shoes.

The second man was described as a light-skinned black man, 35 to 45 years old, with a bald spot on the back of his head. He was wearing a striped, gray and white Polo-style collared shirt and blue jean pants.

Police said the two men broke into a Family Dollar, 4900 N 40th St., about 11:30 p.m. Friday. Police said they also broke into a Auto Zone at 3717 E Hillsborough Ave., about 12:10 a.m. on Aug. 16.

In both cases, the suspects smashed the businesses' lower glass door pane.

Detectives think the men might be homeless and selling the goods on the street. The suspects were wearing the same clothes in both burglaries.
