NORTH FORT MYERS, Fla.- Lee County Sheriff's deputies are still searching for the suspect accused of robbing the Wells Fargo bank, located on Bayshore Rd., on May 22.
Both K9 and Aviation Units tried to locate the white male suspect who had entered the bank and passed a note to a teller. The note implied an explosive device had been placed in the bank and demanded cash. The victim told the robber they needed to get the money from the back. Moments later the suspect exited the bank without any cash and was reportedly seen either on foot or bicycle heading to the east toward a nearby shopping plaza.
The suspect was not located, but is described as in his mid-thirties, approximately 5'9" tall and a slender build. He may have been wearing a blonde wig. He also had a light-colored ball camouflage ball cap, with t-shirt, pants and white shoes.
Anyone who may know the suspect or has additional information is asked to contact the Lee County Sheriff's Office at 477-1000 or, to remain anonymous and be eligible for a reward, Southwest Florida Crime Stoppers at 1-800-780-TIPS(8477).
