    On June 20, 2016 at 7:26 p.m., and on June 21, 2016 at 6:47 p.m., two unidentified suspects entered the Best Buy, located at 12675 Citrus Plaza Dr., and organized the theft of three HP laptops worth a total value of $1200.00. The thefts were captured on in-store video surveillance. It appears the unidentified male suspect acted as a lookout for the unidentified female suspect who removed the laptops from their packages and placed them into a large black bag. On both incidents, the suspects entered and exited the Best Buy separately and it appears they were communicating via cell phone during the thefts.
