TAMPA, Florida -- Detectives are looking for two burglars who stole a purse by smashing the front passenger window of a silver Honda at the Pin Chaser Bowling Alley in Tampa.

The Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office said the crime happened on Saturday, Dec. 29 at around 1:50 p.m. The victim's purse was hidden inside the center console, but by the time she came out of the bowling alley, deputies say the burglars were already using her credit card at a Hess Gas Station and T.G.I.
