 VIDEO: Suspects use stolen credit cards to shop

The Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office is working to identify suspects linked to multiple car burglaries and theft in the area of Town ’N’ Country.
 
Between midnight to 5 a.m. on Thursday, April 22, 2021, three black male suspects wearing dark clothing arrived at a home on the 6900 block of Casa Verde Court in a stolen blue Honda CR-V. The suspects were seen on home surveillance cameras checking multiple vehicle doors before entering an unlocked red Kia Sorento with the keys left inside.
 
The suspects fled the area in both stolen vehicles, proceeding to the Palmera Pointe Apartments where they entered additional unlocked vehicles. All three suspects left the apartment complex in the Kia Sorento, leaving the Honda CR-V behind.
 
The suspects were later seen using stolen credit cards from one of the victims at a shoe store. Surveillance video of both the vehicle burglaries and fraudulent purchases can be viewed here.
 
“Leaving anything of value, especially a wallet or money, where it can be seen is trouble,” said Sheriff Chad Chronister. “More often than not, vehicles targeted by thieves are left unlocked. It is vital for every driver to lock their car doors and secure their belongings every time they leave their vehicles, even if they're parked at their own home.”
 
Anyone who recognizes these suspects is asked to call the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office at 813-247-8200.
