Lee County deputies looking for man they say stole over $2,500 in lotto tickets
Lee County deputies are looking for a man they say stole over $2,500 in scratch-off lottery tickets from a store in Estero.
Southwest Florida Crime Stoppers released photos on Tuesday of the suspect and the pickup he was in.
Deputies say the suspect went into the Koreshan Gas Station at 20260 S. Tamiami Trail and asked the employee for a pack of cigarettes before removing the box from the counter. He dropped it on the floor but was able to retrieve $2,540 worth of tickets before fleeing.
He was in a black Dodge Ram 1500 with chrome rims, according to deputies, and is described as being in his 30s, having light brown skin, 5’8″ to 5’10” tall with a thin build.
Anyone who recognizes him is asked to call Crime Stoppers a call at 1-800-780-TIPS (8477) or submit a tip online at southwestfloridacrimestoppers.com. You can remain anonymous and be eligible for a cash reward.
