Crafty crooks caught on camera

Southwest Florida Crime Stoppers is asking for the public’s help identifying two males who used inside information to break into a south Lee County business on Sunday.

Sometime between 2:15 a.m. and 2:40 a.m. on Sunday, December 3rd, two unknown males managed to break into the Burger Fi, located at 16441 Corporate Commerce Way, through an unknown means.  Once inside, they moved through the kitchen area, where one of the suspects deactivated the restaurant’s alarm using a valid code.  Once the alarm was turned off, the two males walked into the back office and removed an undisclosed amount of cash from a cabinet drawer.  After several minutes, the two suspects were seen on video emerging from the back office, through the grill area, with one of the suspects toting a black bag.

Anyone with information on the suspects 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 or by submitting a tip through the P3Tips mobile app.
