Deputies responded to a report of a burglary on January 18, 2011 around 4:30 a.m. at McDonald's, 8002 Citrus Park Drive. A restaurant surveillance camera captured what happened.
The suspect first attempted to enter through a window to the drive-through lane using a metal sign. The suspect is next seen walking inside the restaurant, and attempts to steal a charity change container attached to a cash register. He then attempts to open a cash register with a metal spatula. Again, no luck! The suspect then strolls out of the front door, empty handed.
The investigation determined the suspect made his way inside the restaurant after he smashed the front door glass with a rock.
Anyone with information on the identity of the burglar is asked to contact the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office at (813) 247-8200 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-873-TIPS.
