TAMPA - Hillsborough County detectives are asking for the public’s help in finding the suspects that stole $100,000 of tobacco from the Good Times Tobacco business in Tampa earlier this week.
Officials are hoping photos caught from the business’ surveillance camera can help catch guilty parties.
Between March 9 and March 11, a 1992 - 2007 White Ford E-250 van pulled up to the locked fence of Good Times Tobacco.
Two unknown suspects dressed in hooded sweatshirts and pants got out of the vehicle and cut the lock.
A second vehicle, a 2002 - 2006 white Cadillac Escalade, pulled behind the van and two more suspects dressed in the same attire got out.
The van along with the four suspects entered into the fenced in area.
While inside, the suspected removed three to four pallets of Cigarillos, filtered cigars, blunt cigars, premium cigars, tobacco wraps and cigarette papers with an estimated value of $100,000.
The suspects then fled the scene.
Anyone with any information is asked to call the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office at (813) 247-8200.
Anyone with any information who wants to be eligible for a cash reward is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-873-TIPS (8477)report anonymously online at www.crimestopperstb.com , or text "CSTB plus your tip" to C-R-I-M-E-S (274637).
