Heartland Crime Stoppers

Liquor theft from Hilltop in Lakeland

Feb 22, 2023
Media Contact : Brian Bruchey, PIO

We're going out on a limb here, but we're guessing this retail theft suspect does not play for the Tampa Bay Rays. We could be wrong, but who knows? This is Polk County and stranger things have happened.

Our detectives are trying to get this man identified. 

On February 22nd at around 7:25pm, a theft of Don Julio tequila and Ciroc vodka was committed at the Hilltop Food Mart at 615 Daughtery Road in Lakeland.

The value of the thefted items is $87. 

Even if this suspect DOES play for the Rays, this is a crime. Bases are the only thing permitted to be stolen by baseball players.

If you recognize this man, please contact Detective Scheidegg at 863-944-9555 or (Case #23-8399)
