    Small, dark-colored SUV, possible damage on rear

    On April 27th at 2:32 a.m., two unknown suspects burglarized the Walgreens located at 6503 W. Waters Ave. One suspect smashed the front window to the left of the entry door, while the other suspect reached in and tied a copper wire around the ATM. The steel wire was connected to a combo wench, which was connected to a chain. The chain was attached to the spare tire located underneath the vehicle. When the vehicle took off at a high rate of speed, it caused the spare tire to break away from the lower portion of the vehicle. Just after the tire broke free, the rear trunk lid popped open. One of the suspects then closed the lid shut and both suspects were observed traveling eastbound from the scene. The estimated damage to the window and the ATM is about $5,500.

    Anyone with information on the suspects’ identities is asked to contact the Sheriff’s Office at (813) 247-8200 or
    Crime Stoppers at 1-800-873-7477.
