TAMPA, Florida -- Hillsborough County Sheriff's deputies are looking for the man who broke into the Hillsborough County Courthouse on Saturday evening.

Deputies say an unidentified man in his 20s forced his way into the courthouse annex by smashing a glass door, hours after the Gasparilla parade took place nearby. The man was reportedly shirtless and wearing parade beads, and he appeared intoxicated.

Security escorted the man from the building, but he fled before law enforcement arrived. Deputies say he caused approximately $500 in damage.

Gasparilla has been a Tampa tradition since 1947, and ranks as the third largest parade in the United States, according to the event's official website. It attracts an estimated one half million attendees annually.

Anyone asked with information on the suspect is asked to call the Hillsborough Sheriff's Office at 813-247-8200 or anyone with any information regarding the identity and whereabouts of this suspect and who wants to be eligible for a cash reward is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-873-TIPS (8477), report anonymously online at www.crimestopperstb.com or text "CSTB plus your tip" to C-R-I-M-E-S (274637).
