Armed suspect on the run after early morning robbery

Southwest Florida Crime Stoppers is asking for the public’s help identifying and tracking down an unknown white male who held up a Lehigh Acres 7-Eleven at gunpoint early this morning.

Witnesses stated that just after 2:30 a.m., the suspect entered the store, located at 501 Sunshine Boulevard N. The suspect asked an employee if they were still selling beer, at which point he pulled a gun from his waistband and ordered the clerk to get behind the counter and hand over all the money in the register. After being given an undisclosed amount of cash, the man fled on foot, headed westbound on Lee Boulevard.

Anyone with information on the identity and whereabouts of the 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 $1,000. Tips may also be made online at www.southwestfloridacrimestoppers.com or by submitting a tip on the P3Tips mobile app.

Note: Four surveillance stills of the suspect are attached to this release. There is no video available at this time.
