Wearing a baseball cap, gloves and, it seems, nothing else, a Florida man burglarized a Little League concession stand in Dunedin earlier this month.
The Pinellas County Sheriffs Office is now asking for help in identifying the man, who Greater Dunedin Little League president Susan Semitecolos said caused about $5,000 in damages.
According to the Sheriffs Office, the man broke into a concession stand at Fisher Field in Dunedin on April 7 around 4 a.m.
Surveillance footage provided to the Tampa Bay Times by Semitecolos shows the man, appearing to be naked, rummaging through the stand. Semitecolos said he stole cash donations to volunteers, a cash box containing $250 and three surveillance cameras.
Semitecolos said the man gained entry by prying a door with a crowbar and breaking through a gate, but not before he broke the lock on a gate covering a sliding glass window and, unsuccessfully, tried to climb through.
Before he left, he also took a package of hot dogs.
The Greater Dunedin Little League is home to about 300 kids and hosts about eight baseball and softball games a night for most of the week. The field is also shared with Dunedin High School.
The stand was closed that Sunday, but was able to reopen a few days later. The robbery was a shock to members of the organization, Semitecolos said.
Its just disturbing that they would take from the kids, she said. The older kids have questions and cant understand how they could do something like that.
Though a setback, response from the community has been encouraging, Semitecolos said.
Were getting a lot of outpour from businesses and local individuals, she said. Its very enlightening. Its encouraging. Its great. The kids are very important to our community.
The Sheriffs Office asks anyone with information to contact Corporal D. Schafer of the Property Crimes Unit at (727) 582-6355 or email@example.com.
“Before he left, he also took a package of hot dogs.”
Theres a joke in there somewhere.
Who hasn't had the munchies at 4:00 am in the morning?
Dunedin is an old community about 10 minutes north of Clearwater. I grew up in the area, and this sort of stuff never happened. The drug-infested parts of Clearwater, north of the downtown area, are leaking into the quiet, middle-class parts of the county which is unfortunate.
I HATE when this happens!
"...there's so many people walking around naked with crowbars in Florida. This is a tuff one"
“The Pinellas County Sheriffs Office is now asking for help in identifying the man”
Reminds me of a scene in the movie Porky’s.
Demoncrat on drugs.
Darn side effect of the sleep medication.
Note to self... No longer sleep nude.
I love your profile by the way. But what’s up with Florida? It seems so many crazies there
And it’s... FLORIDA!
FloriDUH man strikes again. There should be a Florida Man ping list.
Dumb leaving cash overnight in one of those little concession stands.
At least he remembered to wear gloves, so he wouldn’t leave fingerprints, or spread germs.
Yay! Florida Man returns!
[Dirt] Nap time is over!
Yep, all the northern crazies thinks its a free for all down here. Thank God we elected Governor DeSantis.
“Wearing a baseball cap, gloves...”
So, he wasn’t actually naked... as described in the title.
Same name of a town on South Island, New Zealand.
WTF. What the Florida?
I dunno. Can’t quite identify him fully. If only we could see his hands.
Who leaves a cash box out? Sounds suspicious.
