Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office seek suspects who rob International Diamond Center during George Floyd protest

The Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office is seeking information about several people who burglarized a jewelry store in Tampa during the George Floyd protests on May 31.

The burglary happened at International Diamond Center at 10330 N. Dale Mabry Highway, in Tampa, around 2:30 a.m., officials said.

Surveillance video (as seen at the bottom) shows three men breaking the window and entering the store. Check out a screenshot from that video below.

Three of the men were described as follows:

  • One of the men was wearing a gold and black shirt, wearing a white shirt for a face covering. He also has tattoos of stars on his left arm/bicep area.
  • Another man was wearing a black, hooded sweatshirt and jeans.
  • The third man was wearing a blue, orange and yellow hooded sweatshirt and black pants.

All three burglars are approximately 18-24 years in age.

They were driving in a red, four-door sedan, possibly a Nissan Altima.

“This is another incident of people taking advantage of the circumstances during the ongoing protests, but this type of behavior is never okay,” said Sheriff Chad Chronister. “Thankfully, this burglary was caught on camera. If you know who these three suspects are or where to find them, please call the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office.” 

Deputies are asking anyone with information regarding the suspects to call detectives at 813-247-0356.
