LEE COUNTY, Fla.- Crime Stoppers is asking for the public's help identifying two teens who tried to break into a Gateway home this week, and are believed to be responsible for the burglaries of three other cars on the same street.
In the early morning hours on Monday, home surveillance video captured the images of two young men, believed to be in their late teens, entering the screened patio of a Gemstone Court home. The suspects pried the sliding glass door open, but then walked away. While at the home, they also attempted to remove the screen on the master bedroom window, which was open. That same morning, in the pre-dawn hours, three unlocked cars parked on the same street were broken into, with miscellaneous items taken from each. Detectives believe all four incidents are related, and that the young men responsible are familiar with the neighborhood they targeted.
Anyone with information on the identities of these two young men are 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.
