COLLIER COUNTY, Fla. - An armed robbery in East Naples turns into a high speed chase on I75, and the suspect still hasn't been caught. Neighbors in the Summit Place community on Collier Boulevard say one house on the street looked like a crime scene just after 3 p.m. Monday. "She said there was yellow tape and she saw people coming out with gloves on," Nicole Perry heard from neighbors on the street. They also tell her one neighbor called 911 after a man living at the house came running out his front door screaming that he was robbed. Deputies say 45-year-old Guido Dalmolin came home to find a man holding a gun inside his house. The two men got in an argument and the robber left in a black Mercedes. No word yet if the cameras set outside Dalmolin's house caught a glimpse of the robber, but a deputy's dash came most likely did. The sheriff's office says a deputy caught up to the Mercedes at the north on-ramp for I75 at Immokalee Road. The deputy chased the car, reaching speeds of over 120 miles per hour in traffic, but the sheriff's office says they stopped the chase at Alico Road and the robber got away. The Lee County Sheriff's Office tells WINK News they didn't begin a pursuit because they were told the deputy lost sight of the car. The Collier Sheriff's Office says the robber is a white male in his 20s and clean shaving. They couldn't comment on the style of Mercedes he was driving, except that it was black. No word if anyone else was involved. As for the Summit Place community, a member of the Neighborhood Watch tells me they will be bringing up the incident at their meeting Friday.
