    The Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office is asking for the public's help identifying a suspect who ran out of Walmart with a 50" big screen television on Thursday.

    Around 2:30 a.m., an unidentified black male entered the Walmart located at 11720 Dr MLK Jr Boulevard in Seffner and used a set of pliers to cut the security device attached to an ONN 50" LED 4K television. The man then lifted the TV into a shopping cart and pushed it towards the exit of the store. Once he made it to the exit, the man picked up the TV and ran out of the store without paying.

    The suspect was seen getting into the passenger side of an unknown make and model white sedan before fleeing. The suspect is described as a black male in his mid to late 30s, last seen wearing a red shirt, green, blue and white jacket, black athletic shorts and black slides.


    Anyone who recognizes him is asked to call the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office at 813-247-8200.
