Deputies with the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office need your help identifying two suspects responsible for a burglary at the Oscar Cooler Sports Complex on Wednesday, March 8. 




The two suspects used pry bars to break into the concession stand, office and equipment storage at the sports complex located in Lutz. They stole approximately $1,000 in cash, $1,000 worth of sporting equipment, $1,500 in food and they did approximately $2,000 in property damage. Deputies say the suspects loaded the items into an unknown vehicle parked on the west side of Crooked Lane, just south of Lutz Lake Fern Road. 

Despite the theft, the game went on Thursday evening.

"We refuse to let a couple of clowns, a couple of punks dictate how we're going to run our league," said Mike Cook, president of the Lutz Softball league.

The league now has a GoFundMe page to raise funds.

A few weeks earlier thieves took off with thousands of dollars worth of aluminum from the scorers tables at the park where the Forest Hills Youth Baseball league plays.

If you know the suspects in the photo above, or if you have information in reference to these suspects, please call the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office at 247-8200.
