Two people are being sought in the theft of more than $1,000 worth of Ray-Ban glasses from LensCrafters in the Westfield Brandon mall last month.

About 3:15 p.m. March 23, the couple was looking at some glasses at the LensCrafters, 307 Brandon Town Center Mall, according to the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office. They appeared to be acting suspicious, and when an employee offered to help, they fled into the mall.

Later, employees found the couple had stolen four pairs of Ray-Ban sunglasses and four pairs of Ray-Ban regular glasses, the sheriff’s office said. The merchandise is valued at $1,372.00.

The first male suspect is black, about 6-feet tall and weighing 200 pounds, according to the sheriff’s office. He was wearing a black T-shirt, dark shorts, white ankle socks and black sneakers. The black woman with him is about 5-foot-5 and weighing about 170 pounds. She has black hair with pink streak and bangs, and was wearing a dark pink or maroon sweatshirt, purple shirt, pink pants and sandals.

Anyone with any information in this case is asked to call the sheriff’s office at (813) 247-8200. Or, to be eligible for a cash reward, call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-873-TIPS (8477), report the tip anonymously online here or text “CSTB plus your tip” to C-R-I-M-E-S (274637).
