BRANDON — Deputies are searching for two people who were caught on a Walmart surveillance video using stolen credit cards with an infant in tow.

The cards were stolen from a car parked at Brandon High during adult night classes on Sept. 9, according to the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office. The suspects were seen using the credit cards at a Ruskin Walmart with a baby less than an hour after the theft.

The two are also suspects in other recent vehicle burglaries in eastern Hillsborough County.

The woman with him is also Hispanic, 20 to 25 years old with a light complexion and dark hair in a bun. She wore a dark low-cut shirt and dark pants.

The two may be driving in a four-door white vehicle with a sunroof.

    TAMPA — With more than 200 repair requests tumbling in every day, school officials in Hillsborough County are broadening their circle of air conditioning mechanics as they struggle to control a debilitating cycle of breakdowns and sweltering classrooms.

    Hillsborough school officials want to expand the number of contractors who work on broken school air conditioning systems. But it all gets rolled into a workload that has increased by 40 percent since 2011. "With no increase in budget, no increase in equipment and no increase in manpower, and as the equipment gets older and needs more maintenance, this is going to continue to grow," said Robert Weggman, general manager of maintenance."
