LEE COUNTY, Fla.- Southwest Florida Crime Stoppers is asking for the public’s help identifying a man caught on a home security camera stealing from a man who was sleeping, just feet away.
The burglary occurred at 836 S. Town and River Drive shortly before 4:00 a.m. yesterday. The suspect can be seen on video methodically rifling through the victim’s belongings which were placed on a table in close proximity to him. As he perused through the items, he can be seen placing a Rolex watch and other items in his pants pocket. Detectives believe the man may have followed the victim home after a night at a Fowler Street strip club, knowing that the victim was intoxicated and thus, a vulnerable target. In addition to the Rolex, cash and an American Express credit card were also stolen in a time frame of roughly two minutes.
Anyone with information on the identity of the man in this video 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.
