More than 20 Fort Myers auto shops burglarized between May and June

FORT MYERS, Fla. – At least 20 auto dealerships and repair shops have been targeted in the West District of the City of Fort Myers between May 1 and June 1, according to police.

Several businesses along Fowler Street and Cleveland Avenue have reported stolen cars and burglaries, like RNS Automotive, which was hit on May 21. NBC2 previously covered the crime, in which the Fort Myers Police Department released to surveillance video of a suspect with a “unique walk.”
