Roving pack responsible for collection of retail thefts

Southwest Florida Crime Stoppers is asking for the public’s help identifying several individuals believed to be responsible for a series of thefts that span from North Fort Myers to Murdock and Punta Gorda.

Over the last several weeks, the suspects are accused of stealing several thousand dollars worth of electronic equipment from various Wal Mart stores in northern Lee County and southern Charlotte County.  Detectives believe the group is working together as a unit and are likely re-selling the stolen goods for pennies on the dollar through Craigslist, eBay and other venues.

Anyone with information on the identities and whereabouts of any of 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 www.southwestfloridacrimestoppers.com or by submitting a tip on the P3Tips mobile app.
