We are looking for a male and a female who took mail. On May 24th at about 3:18 a.m., the two people in this video entered into the US Post Office in Lakeland (2615 Ellis Avenue) with crime on their minds. They proceeded to break into several mailboxes and steal mail. The good news is that some potentially good evidence (like this video) was recovered. The bad news is, some times it takes a while for those results to come. So hopefully, someone will recognize one or both of these postal pirates and let us know who they are. The video raises a few questions. - Why did the suspect remove his facemask, then hold his shirt up to cover the lower part of his face? - Did he figure he'd be safe from infection since nobody else was inside? - Did he love the smell of his Axe Body Spray on his shirt so much that he kept taking whiffs? - Did he spill BBQ sauce on his shirt and he's just savoring the flavor? -Why did the woman take so long to come inside? -Is the woman wearing different types of sandals or different colored socks? -Why does the woman think that kicking the mailbox with her sandals will produce the force necessary to open it? Most importantly, who are these two? If you think you know, or you have any other information that might be helpful to this investigation, please call Detective Thomas at 863-499-2400 (reference case #20-21033), or to remain anonymous, contact Heartland Crime Stoppers - call 1-800-226 TIPS (8477), visit www.heartlandcrimestoppers.com and click on "Submit A Tip," or download the free "P3tips" app on your smartphone or tablet. #PCSO #SoundOnForTheVideo #HelpUsStampOutTheirCriminalWays #WeWantToDeliverThemToTheJail #ThoseMailboxesPutUpAGoodFight #ThisIsNotHowYouBeatBox #WeDoHaveOneMoreVeryImportantQuestion #WhatWasThatThingGoingAcrossTheScreen
