‘He doesn’t seem to care’: Fresh meat supplies stolen from South Tampa restaurant three times

TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) — Surveillance footage at the Bayshore Mediterranean Grill showed a thief stealing thousands of dollars worth of groceries, according to Tampa Police.

According to restaurant owners, the male thief stole from the restaurant twice last week and returned to steal again on Monday night.

“He doesn’t seem to care, he’s looking straight at the camera, so it was really discouraging and disappointing,” said Katy Davisson, a restaurant worker. “It has to be local; He carries away all the meat and we didn’t see a car,” she added.

Restaurant owners say the thief stole fresh meat, Turkish spices, beer and other side dishes from them.

“It was a bit of a challenge because now we have to go shopping and that’s a big shopping spree. “We have to order all of our food again,” Davisson said.

The owners believe that the thief jumps a fence at the back of the restaurant to commit the crimes. Although they added extra security and locks, that didn’t stop the thief from coming back.

Tampa police are investigating the crime and are hoping to identify the male suspect captured on video. Anyone with information is asked to contact TPD or CrimeStoppers at 800-873-TIPS.
