Authorities: Suspects sought in rash of car burglaries

December 6, 2017
Special to THE CITIZEN ( , Lehigh Acres Citizen

Southwest Florida Crime Stoppers is asking for the public's help identifying one or more suspects who have broken into multiple vehicles in Lehigh Acres over the last several weeks.

The two most recent incidents were the morning of Dec. 5 when a man, wearing a backpack and glasses, broke into two cars on 19th Street Southwest and removed several items. Lee County Sheriff's Office detectives believe the same suspect or suspects are responsible for a recent string of similar break-ins in the area of Gunnery Road and Sunshine Boulevard, along the 23rd Avenue corridor.

Residents are strongly encouraged to lock their car doors and never leave any items of value inside the vehicle, including personal identification. If a thief cannot easily gain access to a car, they will more than likely keep moving down the street until they find an unlocked vehicle.

Anyone with information is asked to call Southwest Florida 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 at or by submitting a tip on the P3Tips mobile app.
