Ex-employee accused in North Fort Myers business burglary

NORTH FORT MYERS, Lee County – A bold burglar is caught on camera violently opening a register to get his way. This happened at the Tire Discount on Pondella Road in North Fort Myers. Now the owner of the shop says they know exactly who the masked thief is. 

“These are the type of people we need to get off the streets. They’ll be doing it to everybody else.” shop owner Yunior Sanchez said.

“A week and a half ago, he broke in again to the building, damaged the front door, stole the scanner, and broke into the register and took the money.” 

Caught on camera, Sanchez says the man in the video prying open his register and stealing a car scanner, is actually a former employee of his, breaking in for the 2nd time in 2 months. 

“Because of the way he moves and his body figure. I could tell you know?”  He said. 

By the video alone, Crimestoppers says it’s obvious that this man knew his way around. 

“Very very good possibility that this person has been in the business before and has some intimate knowledge of the business, he knew what he was after.” said Trish Routte, from SWFL CrimeStoppers. 

Now they are hoping someone can help identify and track down the thief before he does it again. 

“If they don’t catch him this time, he will be back around here to do more damage to my business.” Yunior added.
