Authorities are looking for the two people who used a torch to break into coin machines at a car wash and then took the cash.

About 1:43 a.m. Monday, two suspects used the torch at the Stor-n-More Self Storage at 1505 S. Hwy. 301, just north of the Selmon Crosstown Expressway, in Tampa, according to the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office. The suspects then removed coins and fled.

The two suspects were seen in a surveillance video driving a light-colored, four-door sedan, possibly a 2001 Nissan Altima, the sheriff's office said. The car had silver hubcaps on the driver's side, but none on the passenger's side. No tag was seen attached to the car.

Anyone with any information in the case is asked to call the sheriff's office at (813) 247-8200. To be eligible for a cash reward is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-873-TIPS (8477), report the tip anonymously online at www.crimestopperstb.com or text "CSTB plus your tip" to C-R-I-M-E-S (274637).
