Crime video was a part of all these Tampa-area Florida reports of burglary and theft.
The smash and grab robbery took place at 2:45am. The four smash and grab suspects ran down several aisles while they carried trash bags filled with electronics. The thieves fled the scene in a stolen BMW, almost hitting a police deputy. The getaway vehicle was abandoned at an Orlando multifamily apartment complex. Authorities believed that the juveniles could be involved in a teen Florida crime ring based in Orlando.
Several law enforcement agencies including the Hernando and Sumter County Sheriff’s Officers, Brooksville Police, and the Florida Highway Patrol believe the group is connected to multiple "smash and grab" burglaries over the last six months from Tampa Bay to Orlando. The impacted store had crime video security cameras. Live monitoring was not reported.
Officials say they're "extremely concerned" after forty-two guns were stolen during a break-in at a Tampa area gun retailer and shooting range. The Florida crime of the firearms is disturbing for Tampa law enforcement officials where gun violence has skyrocketed. The store had security cameras. The owner watched the crime video. But it didn't stop the thieves from this expensive theft.
Another Florida crime was a bank robbery in Carrollwood, a suburb in the Tampa area. The armed suspects arrived at a bank in a four door Lexus IS. Surveillance video showed the suspects exit through the front door, jump a fence, and drive away in the getaway vehicle. The suspects were in disguise. The suspects are still at large. Live video monitoring was not reported at this Tampa-area bank.
