Southwest Florida Crime Stoppers is asking for the public’s help identifying and tracking down two suspects who robbed a Lehigh Acres food truck at gunpoint last night.
Just before midnight on Thursday, employees of the Los Taquitos Mexican Food truck, located at 3305 Lee Blvd., were preparing to close for the evening when two males, wearing all black clothing, approached from a nearby vacant field. The employees were ordered to the ground, while the suspects held them at gunpoint. One of the victims was told to get up and retrieve all the money from the cash register, while the second employee was held on the ground and told not to make eye contact with the robbers. After grabbing an undisclosed amount of cash, as well as the victims cell phones, cash and jewelry, the men fled on foot. They are described as being between 19 and 25 years of age, both with thin builds. One of the suspects spoke in English and is believed to be a light-skinned black male; the second suspect is a white or Hispanic male who spoke Spanish, possibly with a Cuban accent.
Anyone with information on the identities or whereabouts of either suspect is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-780-TIPS (8477). All callers will remain anonymous and will be eligible for a cash reward of up to $3,000. Tips may also be made online at www.southwestfloridacrimestoppers.com or by submitting a tip on the P3Tips mobile app.
