LEE COUNTY- New details about a string of burglaries at Lee County Subways.
WINK News learned the woman arrested used to work at one of the stores, and had inside information.
30-year-old Casey Long worked at the Subway on Cape Coral Parkway for nearly three years, until she was recently fired.
According to a new arrest report, she and her partner stole from the Subway several times back in January.
This is before they allegedly went on to burglarize eighteen other stores.
Long and her partner, Damion Stafford are already behinds bars and will now face more charges.
In the arrest report obtained by WINK News, it's revealed Long was fired from the Subway because money was missing from the cash register. In a twist, Long was re-hired a short time later, but she tells police she wasn't paid for nearly three weeks, so she quit.
After quitting, Long admits to breaking into the store on two separate occasions, telling police "they're stupid and leave money there".
This is believed to be the beginning of the crime spree. In a two week time span, almost two dozen Subways shops across Lee County were burglarized after closing for the night. Each burglary was the same: the suspect smash the front door, went for the cash register, before running out the back door.
Long and Damion Stafford told police they broke into all the Subways "to get money to buy drugs".
