LEE COUNTY, Fla.- Southwest Florida Crime Stoppers is asking for the public's help identifying two unrelated bank robbers who, to this point, have gotten away with their felony crimes.
After more than a year, detectives are still searching for the name and location of a very athletic black male who held up the Bank of America, located at 15620 Summerlin Road, on June 20, 2013. According to witnesses, the man burst into the bank and ordered everyone on the floor, while he jumped over the counter and removed cash from the teller drawers, holding what appeared to be a gun covered by a plastic shopping bag. After collecting an undisclosed amount of cash, the man jumped back over the counter and fled on foot towards a nearby CVS parking lot. The man is believed to be in his mid to late 20s, and was wearing a mask and white high top Reebok sneakers at the time of the crime.
Robbery detectives are also hoping the public can identify the woman who held up the Sanibel Captiva Community Bank earlier this month. On June 10, at 12:30 p.m., the white female entered the bank, located at 15975 McGregor Boulevard, and demanded cash from the tellers. Upon compliance, the woman left the bank, headed northbound on McGregor Boulevard, eventually ducking into a wooded area. More than two weeks later, she is still at large.
Anyone with information on the identities and whereabouts of these two robbers 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.
