    Details:

    Over the past year, Patrol District 4 detectives have been investigating a rash of tire and rim thefts that have occurred primarily throughout the southern part of Hillsborough County. During this investigation, detectives obtained enough evidence to obtain an arrest warrant for Brian Dubien in connection to these thefts.

    On September 11, 2013, detectives set up surveillance on Dubien's residence after they spotted his truck parked out front and noticed a set of tires and rims in the rear bed of the truck. A short time later, detectives made a traffic stop as Dubien drove away from his residence in the pick up truck.

    Detectives began examining the truck rims and tires and determined that Dubien had stolen them just six hours earlier in the Rivercrest Subdivision in Riverview.

    Detectives interviewed DuBien and were able to link him to 17 additional tire and rim thefts in southern Hillsborough County including Panther Trace Subdivision, Rivercrest Subdivision and Fish Hawk Ranch Subdivision.

    Detectives are still working on identifying any other thefts Dubien may have been involved and anticipate adding additional felony charges as this investigation moves forward. Brian Dubien has been booked into the Hillsborough County Jail with no bond.
