Police hunt tutu-wearing man and accomplice who stole fruit and soda from farmers market

The Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office in Florida are seeking help identifying two men its deputies say broke into the Tampa Farmers Market on Tuesday and helped themselves to consumables.

The break-in occurred at around 1am on November 1st. Deputies say the men broke a glass door to gain entry to the farmers market. Once inside, the men began eating fruit and drinking soda.

Surveillance video captured images of the men, but the two moved quickly to cover the camera with a cardboard box. In the footage, one suspect is seen holding a melon and a cell phone with its flashlight illuminated before placing the melon on a counter-top.

He is described as a white male with a thin build and was dressed in a tutu. It's also possible he was wearing a wig. The second suspect was wearing a hooded sweatshirt with an owl on the front. Anyone who happens to recognise the men is asked to call the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office.
