Files of . . .
Polk County Crime Stoppers
Polk County Sheriff's Robbery detectives are seeking information concerning two white male suspects driving a red pickup truck committing personal armed robberies in the Lakeland and Plant City areas. 

On November 27, 2002, around 2:00 a.m., a red 90's model Chevrolet 4x4 extended-cab truck, with amber lights along the top of the cab, a toolbox in the bed, and possibly chrome running boards along the bottom, began following the victim's vehicle from Socrum Loop Road to the victim's house at 1563 Kinsman Way in Lakeland.  When the victim got out of his vehicle at the residence, he heard a male voice yell at him and then was kicked to the ground.  The suspect, described as a white male, in his late teens or early 20's, with a light-colored mask covering the lower half of his face, then pointed a black revolver at the victim and demanded his wallet.  When the victim complied, the suspect got into the driver's seat of the red truck, removed cash from the wallet, and threw the wallet out of the window as he fled. 
There was a passenger in the truck, described as a white male in his late teens or early 20's.

PCSO detectives have been in contact with Plant City police who say two other robberies by the same suspects occurred in Plant City later that same morning.
