Tampa, Florida-- "Dine and ditch"- one Steak 'N' Shake customer brought a whole new meaning to the saying when he dined, and then ditched his iPhone 5 in the booth before leaving.

Of course, it was a mistake that the customer left the phone, but another customer took his forgetfulness as an opportunity to pocket the $600 smartphone for himself.

Surveillance footage from the restaurant off Sheldon Toad shows the man walking over to the booth, picking up the phone and then leaving without attempting to turn it in.

Now officials ask for your help in identifying the suspect. He's described as a white male, between 25 and 27 years old. He's approximately 5'8', 170 pounds, with a medium build and brown hair. He was last seen wearing black framed glasses, a blue short-sleeved shirt and jeans.

Anyone with any information reference the suspect is asked to call the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office at 813-247-8200. You may also report anonymously by contacting Crime Stoppers. Call 1-800-873-TIPS (8477), report online or text "CSTB plus your tip" to C-R-I-M-E-S (274637).
