A couple of incidents in Brandon Town Center Mall over the weekend had law enforcement busy.

The Zales in Brandon Town Center had a suspect enter around 1:30 p.m. on Saturday. The Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office said the man claimed to be armed and stole 10 gold necklaces and a gold ring from a display. He then fled the store. Nobody was injured during the theft.

Anyone with information about the suspect is asked to contact the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office at 813-247-8200. To remain anonymous, you can also contact CrimeStoppers of Tampa Bay at 1-800-873-8477.

The next incident happened Saturday night around 7:30, when a man jumped from the upper level of a carousel inside the mall. He was yelling something incoherent, scared some shoppers and caused some nearby stores to close their doors. The activity and sounds made people believe there were shots fired. There were no shots, and a man was taken into custody deputies for an evaluation.

According to deputies, the two incidents are not connected.
