University Police are investigating the theft of a tractor from USF Friday. The $40,000 piece of equipment was stolen from the construction site near the H. Lee Moffitt Center at about 4 p.m., according to a police report.
Sgt. Mike Klingebiel, spokesman for University Police, said officials are reviewing surveillance videos taken from inside the Moffitt Center to assist them in finding suspects. The video, Klingebiel said, shows the tractor being driven away from the site but no identification could be determined from the tape yet.
University Police were not notified that the tractor was being stolen at that time, Klingebiel said. The construction company reported the theft the following day.
“Right now we’re in the beginning stages of investigation. Like with vehicle thefts, there is a methodology to following up, and on this we have surveillance.”
University Police have also been investigating the theft of several Bulls Country signs. The stolen property is valued at about $750 and was stolen between October and December, according to the police report.
Bob Fiallo, coordinator for university advancement, organized Bulls Country as a project to give USF more name recognition in areas surrounding the Tampa campus, by posting banners and signs at local retailers and along Fowler and Fletcher avenues.

Coach Brian Gregory said Tuesday the Bulls didn’t play complete, 40-minute games in their two losses last week. It’s debatable if they did Wednesday night against East Carolina (11-18, 5-11) at the Yuengling Center, but it was more than enough to put up a 73-68 overtime win. “It’s funny. There were stretches where we played […]
