    Surveillance Video:


    Detectives are searching for a man that broke into a Tampa business to scope it out for a possible future burglary.
    A black male forced entry into the Colonial Distributing warehouse located at 10889 Crossroads Commerce Blvd. just after midnight on July 8th. Once inside, he walked around documenting the various inventory and communicating with someone on his cell phone. He seemed particularly interested in the tobacco products. Colonial Distributing has already been targeted for their tobacco products once before when their warehouse was at a different location. Although during Sunday’s break-in nothing was taken, detectives believe the pictured suspect was gathering intel for a future burglary.
