Southwest Florida Crime Stoppers is asking for the public's help identifying a suspect who robbed a Lehigh Acres store at gunpoint Thursday night.
Employees at the Family Dollar, at 3519 Lee Blvd., were preparing to lock the door and close the store for the night just after 10:30 p.m. As the employees approached the door, a black male, donning a purple mask, approached the two from the bushes and forced them back inside the store. While brandishing a firearm, he demanded money from the safe.
The suspect left with an undisclosed amount of cash, as well as miscellaneous tobacco products.
