Ten days ago, the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office reviewed a surveillance video that showed a male thief stealing a Nikon camera at the Best Buy in Brandon. Now, the video of a female thief, caught on tape Nov. 14, has been released in the case of a Canon camera swipe from the same store.
The latest theft reportedly occurred at 12:41 p.m., after the thief entered the Best Buy at 116 Grand Regency Blvd., across the street from the Westfield Brandon shopping mall. The thief reportedly stole a Canon ES60D digital camera, valued at $1,104.79.
The thief is described as a black female, 30 to 49 years of age, standing 5-foot-8 and weighing about 180 pounds. She was last seen wearing a blue jersey with the number "10" on the front.
Earlier this month the sheriff's office released a surveillance video showing a male thief stealing a Nikon camera, reportedly valued at $2,698, from the same store. That theft occurred at about 3:40 p.m. The thief was seen leaving the store in a gold Toyota Camry.
The Nov. 4 thief is described as a black male, 30- to 49-years-old, 6-foot, 225 pounds, with short black hair, seen wearing a blue shirt and blue jeans.
