Media Contact : Carrie Horstman, Administrator

The Polk County Sheriff's Office is looking for 19-year-old Malikai Hause-Sanders, who is believed to be in the south Lakeland area but possibly in Hillsborough County. He has a Polk County warrant for grand theft of a firearm, and grand theft.

Hause is homeless so some family members let him stay at their house for a few days. While there, he decided to break into their safe, stealing nearly $4,000 in cash and a firearm, and then stole their golf cart valued at $4,000. The thievery was also captured on video surveillance.

Hause is 5'5" with brown eyes and black hair. If you have any information on his whereabouts, please call PCSO at 863-298-6200 or Detective Tippett at 863-678-4115.
