The Polk County Sheriff’s Office is hoping someone recognizes these suspects

On Friday, March 18, 2022, three men entered the Circle K store (8324 US 98 N.) in unincorporated Lakeland and stole an 18-pack of Michelob Ultra. One of the suspects was also observed shoving small bottles of Johnny Bootlegger Peach in his pants. 

They left the store without paying and fled the scene in a dark colored 4x4 pick-up truck driven by a possible fourth suspect.

All three suspects were wearing light colored t-shirts and dark colored shorts. One of the suspects is described as having longer black hair and a beard. He is about 25-years-old, approximately 5’8” tall, and weighs around 130 lbs.
