The Sarasota Police Department is searching for two men who they say stole two paintings worth about $7,500 in December.
About 5 p.m. on Dec. 12, the two men walked into Art Avenue, a store at the Westfield Southgate Mall located at 3501 S. Tamiami Trail, Suite 119, and took two paintings from the walls without paying for them.
According to surveillance footage, one of the men has tattoos on his forearms and a mustache, and the other was wearing a blue-gray baseball cap and was clean-shaven.
