NAPLES, Fla - Naples police arrested a 20-year-old man for the armed robbery of Rita's Italian Ice. Detectives say Shawndell Deandre McCann held up the shop on August 23rd.
Employees say a man in a ski mask entered the rear door of the store and order employees to open a safe and place money in a bag.
Detectives say McCann sent and received text messages with others regarding planning the robbery, obtaining a pellet gun that resembled a real gun, and completing the robbery.
Last Friday the arrest warrant was approved for the charge of armed robbery. McCann is currently incarcerated in the Lee County Jail on unrelated charges. The warrant was submitted to the CCSO warrants division, and a hold was placed on McCann with LCSO.
