    Details:

    The Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office is searching for two men related to vehicle theft and burglary incidents in a Gibsonton neighborhood. Around 1 a.m. on January 17, two male suspects entered the Carriage Point Subdivision in a stolen black Lexus committing burglaries before stealing another vehicle, a blue Volkswagen Jetta. By 1:30 a.m., a deputy spotted both stolen vehicles on Honeywell Road and attempted a traffic stop. The suspects sped away. Both vehicles were later located unoccupied.  The suspects, seen on home surveillance cameras, are described as black males, one wearing a dark colored hoodie tied tight around his face with writing on
