LEHIGH ACRES, Fla.- Southwest Florida Crime Stoppers is asking for the public's help identifying a man who broke into a Lehigh Acres business earlier this week.
According to detectives, the security alarm at Lehigh Auto, located at 5507 8th Street W., was triggered shortly after 3:00 a.m. on Monday. When the owner arrived shortly thereafter, he discovered that the front window to the business had been pried off, and a 52” Samsung plasma television had been stolen.
Surveillance cameras inside the business captured images of the man using a screwdriver to carefully remove the glass pane on the front door of the store. He then used his camouflage t-shirt to place the glass onto the ground. Once inside the business, he quickly removed the large television set before creeping back out the front door.
Anyone with information on the identity and whereabouts of the suspect is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-780-TIPS (8477). Tips may also be made online at www.swflcrimestoppers.org or by texting a tip to CRIMES (274637). A cash reward of up to $1,000 is being offered for anyone with information that leads to an arrest.
