NORTH FORT MYERS, Fla.- Tips led to the identification of two men accused of ransacking homes in North Fort Myers. Jonathan Pack, 19, and Christopher Estep, 24, have been identified and coincidentally, are currently incarcerated in the Lee County Jail on unrelated charges.
Yesterday afternoon, Pack was charged with 13 counts of burglary and grand theft, and is now being held without bond. An investigation into Estep’s involvement is still on-going. Additional charges are pending for Pack.
Detectives said the two went on a night-long spree of burglarizing and ransacking homes and vehicles in the North Fort Myers area, stealing, among other things, bicycles and various other personal belongings. The two were captured on video around 2:30 a.m. at a nearby 7-11 convenience store, and numerous anonymous tipsters identified the destructive duo as Pack and Estep.
Some of the stolen items were recovered and returned to their rightful owners, however others were not. Both Pack and Estep have lengthy criminal histories. Pack was arrested for his first felony at age 15 when he was charged with the grand theft of a firearm. Since then, he’s been charged with additional counts of grand theft auto and other theft-related incidents. Estep is a registered convicted felon, whose rap sheet also lists charges of burglaries, robbery and narcotics.
