Suspect sought in armed Lehigh Acres robbery

Southwest Florida Crime Stoppers is asking for the public’s help identifying an unknown suspect who held up a Lehigh Acres Circle K at gunpoint early Thursday morning.

Just after 3:30 a.m. on July 27, an unknown light skinned black male entered the Circle K, located at 1181 Homestead Road, and immediately pointed a handgun at the clerk.  The man demanded that the clerk open the register, at which point he reached over the counter, grabbed the entire till, and left the business with an undisclosed amount of cash.  The suspect fled the scene in a silver car, unknown make or model.

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:  Several surveillance photographs of the suspect, and his vehicle, are attached to this release.  There is no video available at this time
