    On October 25, 2015 between the hours of 1:30 am and 5:26 am, the suspects broke into the Tribalco Company located at 1802 Grant Street in Tampa by cutting a hole in the loading dock door. Once inside, the subjects broke through an adjoining wall into Carrier Air and removed a large quantity of R22 freon. The subjects loaded the freon onto a trailer which was stolen from a nearby business and fled the area. Witnesses observed the subjects offloading the freon from the trailer into a U-Haul box truck. The stolen trailer was abandoned with the trailer's tag removed. The U-Haul left the area accompanied by a red in color Dodge Durango.

    Based on forensics found at the scene the identities of the suspects was determined.

    It is believed that the suspects could possibly have fled to the Orlando, Florida area or to Greenville, South Carolina.
