Tutu-wearing burglar steals fruit from farmers market

TAMPA -- A suspect wearing a wig and a tutu was seen in surveillance footage breaking into the Tampa Farmers Market in the hours just after Halloween concluded.

Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office is searching for this suspect and another man who allegedly entered the market through a broken glass door and drank soda and stole fruit around 1:00 a.m. on November 1st.

In the footage posted to YouTube, the suspect is seen holding a melon and a cell phone with its flashlight illuminated before placing the melon on a counter-top. The next frames show the second suspect, who was wearing a Drake OVO hooded sweatshirt with an image of an owl on it, and the tutu suspect placing a box over the camera.
