WATCH: Two Florida Burglars Sought By Sheriff After Intense Struggle To Steal An Empty Safe

POLK COUNTY, Fla. – Polk County Sheriff’s Office is seeking to identify two burglary suspects that broke into a Lakeland carpet store and stole the very heavy safe.

According to investigators, on Sunday, just after 3:00 am, one of the suspects smashed the front glass door of Ronnie’s Carpets in Lakeland, with a crowbar, enters the store, and prowls for the safe.

The suspect can be seen on camera struggling with the beast, but finally flips the safe over and is able to push it to the door.

A second suspect can be seen trying to push the safe across the parking lot towards a car. The suspects are able to load the safe and take off.

“We would have loved to have seen their faces when they opened the safe (if they ever managed to do that) and saw that there was nothing inside of the safe. We’ll settle for seeing their faces in their mug shots after they get arrested. But to do that, we need to identify them first,” said Heartland Crime Stoppers in a social post.
