    Details:

    Between September 21, 2011 at 5:30 p.m. and September 22, 2011 at 4:00 p.m., an unknown suspect entered the barn located at 14103 N. McIntosh Road in Thonotosassa and removed small antique items and a 1972 Plymouth Satellite car. The suspect (s) also killed the victim’s dog, Ellie Mae, a 3-1/2 year old Rhodesian Ridgeback mix. Animal Services responded to the scene for the deceased animal.

    The suspect(s) removed two motorcycles from the barn and placed them into the victim’s truck, which was parked near the Highway 301 gate. The hood was lifted on this truck also, and it appeared the suspect (s) had intended to steal the truck and the motorcycles. Detectives believe they were unable to get the truck started.

    The barn is an antiques shop that is open to the public occasionally. It was open last weekend.

    Anyone with any information reference the suspect (s) is asked to call the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office at 247-8200 or anyone with any information regarding the identity and whereabouts of this suspect(s) and who wants to be eligible for a cash reward is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-873-TIPS (8477), report anonymously online at www.crimestopperstb.com or text "CSTB plus your tip" to C-R-I-M-E-S (274637).
