LEE COUNTY, Fla.- Authorities are trying to identify two men believed to be responsible for a series of car burglaries in south Lee County last week.
Several unlocked cars were targeted by thieves on Wednesday. In one instance, home surveillance video captured images of two men breaking into a victim's unlocked car on Beaulieu Court. Around 3:40 a.m., the men opened the driver's side door and rummaged through the vehicle for any valuables. A few hours later, a neighbor told the victim that he found her registration papers, insurance card and owners manual for her Jeep in his yard, items which were apparently tossed by the men after entering her car. After canvassing the neighborhood, deputies discovered that multiple unlocked cars had been tampered with in that same neighborhood during the late night/early morning hours of July 9.
The suspects are believed to be in their late teens or early 20s. One suspect was wearing glasses and another had what appeared to be a tattoo on his right forearm. The men may have been driving a light-colored, four-door sedan, possibly a Chrysler 300.
Anyone with information on the young men responsible for last week’s break-ins in south Fort Myers 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.
