Two people are being sought by authorities in connection to electronics thefts at a Brandon Walmart.

Around 2:55 a.m. on Monday, a man and a woman entered a Walmart store at 1208 E. Brandon Boulevard and took "high dollar value electronics," according to a release from the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office. The items were concealed in the woman's purse, HCSO says.

The suspects then returned the next day around the same time and took items. The total value of what was taken: $420.

The two then fled in a dark gray or green older model Jeep Grand Cherokee.

The man is believed to be white and around 18 years old, with dirty blond or brown hair wearing a camouflage jacket, Crocs and a white and black trucker hat. The other suspect is believed to be a white woman with blonde hair, around age 18, wearing a red shirt and carrying a white purse, HCSO says.

Crime Stoppers of Tampa Bay is offering up to a $3,000 reward for information on the case that leads to an arrest.
