FORT MYERS, Fla.- Lee County Sheriff's detectives hope someone out there might have information on an armed home invasion robbery that occurred overnight in Fort Myers.
On Monday just before 3:00 a.m., deputies received a call in reference to an armed home invasion robbery at 648 Astarias Circle. It was determined that two or more males pried open the front door to the residence. Once inside, the suspects blindfolded the female victim and tied her up with duct tape.
One of the suspects demanded money, gold and jewelry from the female victim. One of the suspects threatened to take the victim to a bank ATM to retrieve money. The suspects continued ransacking the residence, removing two large TV's, a laptop and jewelry. The suspects then stole and fled in the victim's 4 door, light blue BMW 323I (323-followed by the letter "I".) Deputies discovered a firearm on the victim's TV stand. The victim advised the firearm was not hers.
Because she was blindfolded, the victim cannot give a description of the suspects or say with certainty how many there were.
