Deputies were questioning men on Shetland Lane in Fort Myers about golf cart burglaries in the area when deputies say they took off running into the woods.
Choppers, K9s, and squad cars scoured the area for hours looking for them. Deputies have still not identified them.
But their father tells WINK his sons stole the golf carts to support their addiction to pain pills. He says it's an epidemic, and his sons are victims of the problem.
He says he's embarassed about what happened and believes his sons are good at heart.
Deputies tell WINK they found the two men they were looking for, but declined to tell WINK why the men were released. Now authorities are only looking for one person of interest in the golf cart robberies.
