The search continues for two individuals who were identified as selling books — believed to have been stolen — to the USF Bookstore, according to University Police (UP).
UP listed the two individuals as Jacob Tillman and Heidi Leheup. UP Public Information Officer Renna Reddick said the two were identified based on prior arrests and information from other agencies.
“Bookstore staff conducted inventory after these subjects tried to sell back books and the inventory showed they were (two) books short,” Reddick said in an email.
The incident under investigation occurred on Aug. 30, when Tillman and Leheup entered the store at approximately 4 p.m., according to a UP notification. The two left and entered a gold 2002 Toyota Camry with Florida tag 9059TZ.
Leheup returned after about 30 minutes to try to sell two books back to the bookstore and then left in the same Camry.
The investigation is currently ongoing and UP is working to locate Tillman and Leheup.
“Community alerts have been posted and the bookstore on campus have the subjects’ photos and names,” Reddick said.
UP encourages anyone with information related to the theft or the location of Tillman and Leheup to contact UP.
