Special to THE CITIZEN ( , Lehigh Acres Citizen

Southwest Florida Crime Stoppers is asking for the public's help identifying and tracking down two suspects who broke into four Lehigh Acres businesses earlier this week.

In the early morning hours of Nov. 27, two white men, donned in all black clothing and ski masks, pried open the back door of New York Pizza, at 1322 Homestead Road N. Once inside the vacant business, they cut through the drywall of the adjacent businesses located in the same shopping center.

They either successfully gained entry or attempted to enter: T-Mobile, at 1320 Homestead Road N.; Great Florida Insurance, at 1322 Homestead Road N.; and H & R Block, at 1318 Homestead Road N.

After cutting a hole in the wall and making their way into the T-Mobile Store, the suspects used crow bars to pry open a safe. They then proceeded to H & R Block, where a wall in the back office was cut out and pushed in. However, it does not appear that the suspects removed any items from the business.

The suspects also tried to maneuver the rear door at Great Florida Insurance, and while they were unsuccessful at their efforts, they did manage to cause roughly $800 in damages.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 800-780-TIPS (8477). All callers will remain anonymous and will be eligible for a cash reward of up to $1,000. Tips may also be made online at or by submitting a tip through the P3Tips mobile app.
