Deputies are searching for two suspects, who broke into two houses, as the homeowners slept.
The first incident happened June 24th along Prowmore Drive. Tiana Beard did not realize her home had been broken into until she woke up. She said a number of her belongings were missing including a laptop, tv, and purse.
Deputies believe those same suspects broke into a home 8 days later on July 2 and that burglary happened along Summer Clouds Place. Brandon Burdett was also sleeping. He did not wake up until after the crime had been committed. Various items were stolen from Burdett's home, including a tv, playstation, a drone, and his 2015 Ford Escape. The Ford Escape has a Florida Tag: 897 TIW.
Authorities said the suspects could be driving Burdett's car or a station wagon. Surveillance cameras caught the suspects in the both neighborhoods.
"It's a scary feeling knowing that strangers -not welcomed- that had enough guts, you could say, to just come into somebody's house," Tiana Beard said.
If anyone has any information about these cases, they need to call the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office at (813) 247-8200 or Crime Stoppers at 1 (800) 873-8477.
"They did everything wrong. There's fingerprint evidence; there's DNA evidence. They're on camera," Burdett said.
