Specialty bike stolen from handicapped man in Tampa

- Deputies are searching for two suspects spotted on camera stealing a specialty hand bike from a handicapped man in Tampa on Wednesday.

Deputies said the bike was left unsecure in front of the Wawa on E. Fletcher Ave. just after 6 p.m. when two suspects stole it and fled west toward N. 22nd St.

The bike was a green Quickie Shark hand bike valued at $2,000 and was donated to the victim, who's handicapped, by the parks and recreation department, deputies said.

Deputies identified the suspects as two black males between the age of 16 to 21, and about 5 feet 11 inches tall. One suspect was wearing a white t-shirt with khaki pants and wearing a gold chain. The other was described as having black dreads, a black t-shirt with the word "Bacon" on the back, blue jeans and red apron (possible fast food worker uniform.)

Anyone who recognizes the suspects in the photos released by deputies should call the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office: 247-8200 or Crime Stoppers: 1-800-873-TIPS (8477). You may be eligible for a cash reward.
