WANTED
Grand Theft
Wanted as of 08/31/2018
Name: Hobbs, Tammi
Gender: Female   Race: Black
DOB: Unknown   Age: 41
Wanted By: Polk County Sheriff's Office, Winter Haven, FL
On June 21st, one of our detectives was at Lakeside Village in Lakeland conducting an investigation, when something caught his attention. Two women bolted out of Victoria’s Secret carrying large bags, hopped into a nearby car, and took off. The detective thought this was suspicious behavior, so he made note of the car’s tag number.

The detective went in to Vicki’s Secret and confirmed that a retail theft had just occurred.

The detective looked at security video, and it showed the two women loaded up large bags of “PINK” brand attire. 
Total value of the take: $385.45. Schnikes!!!

Using his fine detectiving skills, our detective determined who one of the women was… Tammie Hobbs.

Let’s go back to Tammie’s criminal history. She has a whopping 46 prior felony charges and 30 prior misdemeanor charges…lots of serious drug charges, thefts, aggravated battery, good old-fashioned regular battery, resisting, dealing in stolen property, forgery, child neglect, child abuse, welfare fraud, and of course, previous shoplifting. She has been to the Big House (Florid State Prison) three separate times. Maybe Tammie misses prison. We would like to help arrange a reunion there because she has clearly not learned her lesson.

Tammie is believed to be in the St. Petersburg area—her last arrest in February was in St. Pete. Or she could be “shopping” at a store near you. If you have friends or family in the St. Pete area, please share this with them since she’s probably over there stealing from their community right now.
