Fleeing Valrico burglars fire at neighbor

- Deputies are looking for three burglars who shot at a neighbor after swiping a TV and some bikes from a Valrico home.

According to the sheriff's office, it was just before 1 p.m. when a white ford F-150 pickup rolled up to a home on Wexford Green Drive.  Three burglars broke in through the sliding glass door and grabbed a 50-inch TV along with a pair of dirt bikes -- one, an adult-sized red and white Honda, and the second a youth-sized Kawasaki or Suzuki green and white bike.

On their way out, deputies say, the three were confronted by a neighbor.  One of the suspects fired two shots, but did not hit anyone.

The white F-150 drove off with an estimated $13,000 in stolen goods.

The suspects were described as:
1. Black male, 18-23 years of age, last seen wearing a black hooded jacket
2. Black male, 18-23 years of age, last seen wearing a light-colored long-sleeved shirt and jeans
3. Black male, 18-23 years of age, last seen wearing a light-colored long-sleeved shirt and jeans

Anyone with any information is asked to call the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office.  A cash reward is available through Crime Stoppers at  1-800-873-TIPS (8477) and www.crimestopperstb.com.
