ID Sought For Quick
Acting Early Morning Thief
Southwest Florida Crime Stoppers is asking for the public’s help identifying an unknown black male who broke into a Lehigh Acres business earlier this week.
According to detectives, the security alarm at Lehigh Auto – located in the 5000 block of 8th Street W – was triggered shortly after 3 a.m. on Monday, April 21st.
When the owner arrived, he discovered that the front window to the business had been pried off, and a 52” Samsung plasma television was stolen.
Surveillance video shows the suspect using a screwdriver to carefully remove the glass pane on the front door of the store. He then used his camouflage t-shirt to place the glass onto the ground. Once inside the business, he quickly removed the large television set before creeping back out the front door.
Anyone with information on the identity and whereabouts of the suspect is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-780-TIPS (8477). Tips may also be made online at www.swflcrimestoppers.org or by texting a tip to CRIMES (274637). A cash reward of up to $1,000 is being offered for anyone with information that leads to an arrest.
