Deputies want your help identifying a suspect in a recent Riverview Radio Shack robbery.

The Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office put out video of the robbery, which occurred April 1 while the store was closing just after 9 p.m.

The suspect "implied" he had a weapon, according to HCSO. He told all employees and customers to drop their phones, even locking several people in the bathroom of the store. 

The suspect had one employee show him where the iPhones were kept and ended up stealing more than 30 phones -- estimated to be worth at least $18,000.

A dark-colored Ford Fusion with tinted windows was seen out front before the man came inside.
