HILLSBOROUGH COUNTY, FL (WFLA) -

Deputies hope surveillance pictures will help catch a man who stole from two Target stores multiple times.

On the morning of August 6, a man walked into the Target at 11627 W. Hillsborough Ave. in Tampa.  Investigators say he cut the anti-shoplifting devices from a set of Beats By Dre headphones and a Samsung cell phone charger. The suspect then left the store without paying for the merchandise.

Later that same day, the man walked into the Target on W. Waters Avenue.  Deputies say he cut the anti-shoplifting device from a Jawbone Big Jambox speaker, and left the store with it.

Apparently two trips weren't enough, because on August 9th and 12th, deputies say the same man went back to the Target on W. Hillsborough Ave. and stole more Jawbone speakers and Beats By Dre headphones.

Deputies say the stolen merchandise is worth more than $2,100.

Anyone with any information is asked to call the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office at 247-8200.  If you want to be eligible for a cash reward, you can 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).
