Credit card skimmers on gas pumps are a nagging problem for law enforcement and the public. These sly criminals are really good at connecting skimmers without leaving any trace. Most times the only way it becomes known is when the card owners realize their account information fell into the wrong hands. But sometimes the good guys win. This thief was putting skimmers around tampa bay, but forgot or was clueless about leaving his fingerprint on one at a radiant store on fletcher avenue. We found the skimmer, his fingerprint and took him into custody.

We got a great tip about the possible identity of four teen burglars who broke into a house while the owners were on vacation. But first, here's a twist to the case worth a chuckle. The home security camera captured it. Gotta love those home security systems that don't look like home security systems. The four burglars then rummaged through the house, stealing jewelry, cash, golf clubs and the victim's car. In the end, we recovered all of the the stolen property and put all four in handcuffs!

Did you know, many crimes committed in Hillsborough County could easily be avoided?

June 10th to August 10th is Summer Break for students who attend public schools in Hillsborough County. Unfortunately, we often see a rise in thefts and burglaries during this time. Often, many crimes occur when someone leaves their vehicle or garage door open and un-secure.

Here are some tips to help you avoid being a victim. A good rule of thumb is; “Hide it, lock it, and take your keys.”

1. Always lock your car.

2. Never leave valuables in plain view.

3. Close and lock your garage door.

Thieves love to window shop, and are always looking for the path of least resistance.

Please, take extra diligence during this time to make sure your vehicle, along with your residence and garage door is always secure.

And as always, immediately report suspicious behavior to law enforcement.

Symbols are all around us. They represent something, evoke emotions of pride and honor, and help us identify with a message or a brand. 

For the deputies of the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office, the badge is our symbol. We wear it on our chests, out front and over our hearts. 

HCSO began 170 years ago this year. To commemorate those decades of duty to the public, Sheriff David Gee allocated money to create an anniversary badge. A team of deputies designed it, SymbolArts of Utah made it, and every law enforcement and detention deputy proudly wears it. 

For $18 each, the badges help us tell a story that began so many years ago, a story that is relived and retold in our new History Center, which opens to the public on May 5 in Ybor City. We know the public appreciates our heritage and our commitment to serve and protect – and remember.
