LEE COUNTY, Fla.- Lee County detectives hope someone from the public can help identify the suspects who brazenly emptied three cash registers in the middle of the day at a Lee County Walmart.
On December 4, deputies were called to the Walmart on Colonial Blvd. in reference to a theft. According to the Loss Prevention Officer, a white female holding a clipboard posed as a Walmart employee while two other subjects removed money from three unmanned cash registers. One of the subjects had a key that opened the registers.
The woman holding the clipboard is approximately 5'-5'' to 5'-7" tall and was wearing a dark blue shirt and tan pants. The second suspect is a black male in his late 30's. He's approximately 6' to 6'-3" tall and was wearing a white striped shirt and jeans. The third suspect is a black female, approximately 5'-8" to 5'-10 inches tall and was wearing a blue shirt and jeans. The suspects were seen leaving in a silver Ford Escape SUV.
Lee County detectives believe the same suspects are involved in similar incidents in North Port and Port St. Lucie.
If you can identify any of these suspects, call the Lee County Sheriff's Office at (239) 477-1000. Or, to remain anonymous and be eligible for a cash reward of up to $1,000, call Southwest Florida Crime Stoppers at 1-800-780-TIPS.
