LEE COUNTY, Fla.- Southwest Florida Crime Stoppers is asking for the public's help tracking down a man and woman accused of breaking into the Alico Safe Storage on July 6, causing nearly $20,000 of damage inside the building.
According to deputies, the suspects threw a concrete block through the front door of the business around 10:00 p.m. on Saturday, July 6. Once inside the business, they damaged computers, video surveillance systems, copiers, drywall and other office items. Surveillance cameras perched outside the business caught the male rolling out a safe, while his older female counterpart stood watch. At one point, the male, who has been identified as 20-year-old James Moore could be seen making rude physical gestures at the cameras, while the unidentified female grew visually impatient at the lack of speed in which it took to roll the safe into their awaiting vehicle.
A warrant for the arrest of Moore has been issued on charges of burglary of a dwelling causing damage in excess of $1,000 and grand theft.
Anyone with information on Moore’s whereabouts and the identity of the female suspect is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-780-TIPS (8477). All callers will remain anonymous and will be eligible for a cash reward of up to $1,000.
