CAPE CORAL, Fla. - Cape Coral Police have made an arrest in yesterday's early morning robbery. Cape Coral Detectives arrested 24-year-old Andrew Touchstone on charges of Armed Robbery, Aggravated Assault, Grand Theft Auto and Grand Theft.
On Wednesday at 6:30 a.m., a woman was attempting to use the drive-thru ATM at the Bank of America located at 926 Cape Coral Parkway East. As she was preparing to begin her transaction, Touchstone opened the passenger door and jumped into the victim’s car. Touchstone demanded money from the victim, identified as Angel Cullember.
She drove a short distance (less than one block) in an effort to get Touchstone to exit her car. Touchstone did not exit; instead he pulled a box-cutter style knife and threatened her. The victim, fearing for her life, jumped out of the car. Touchstone slid over to the driver’s seat and drove off with her car.
Detectives viewed the surveillance camera still photos from the ATM and believed the suspect to be Touchstone, who is no stranger to law enforcement. The victim was able to positively identify Andrew Touchstone as the man who robbed her and stole her car.
Lee County Sheriff’s Deputies arrested Touchstone in Fort Myers on an unrelated warrant last evening and Cape Coral Police Detectives were able to question him about the robbery. Touchstone confessed to robbing the woman and stealing her car to fuel his drug addiction.
Andrew Touchstone was arrested, booked and remains in the Lee County Jail without bond.
The victim's car was recovered.
