LEHIGH ACRES, Fla. - Southwest Florida Crime Stoppers is asking for the public’s help identifying a man who skillfully broke into a Lehigh Acres business earlier this week.

According to detectives, the security alarm at Lehigh Auto on 8th Street W. in Lehigh Acres was triggered shortly after 3 a.m. on Monday.

When the owner arrived shortly thereafter, he discovered that the front window to the business had been pried off, and a 52” Samsung plasma television had been stolen.

Surveillance cameras inside the business captured images of the man using a screwdriver to carefully remove the glass pane on the front door of the store.

Anyone with information on the identity and whereabouts of the suspect is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-780-TIPS.
