Another Home Invasion
Lee County deputies are investigating a home invasion in Lehigh Acres that is very similar to one that occured last week on Martin Avenue.
The latest invasion happened on the 3200 block of 35th Street W early Friday morning. The victim, who is a retired cop, says three masked men woke him up with guns to his head and started yelling racist remarks. At one point, the victim says the gunmen told him, “We know you have money because you are white” and called him a “white racist.”
The suspects then tied him up and ransacked his home — even hitting the fridge. Investigators say the masked men got away with two guns, a wallet and his cell phone.
Just like last weeks home invasion on Martin Avenue, the suspects tried to steal the man’s car — but they couldn’t open his garage door.
Crime scene investigators are dusting for finger prints, which could ultimately tie the two cases together if they are connected.
