Photos released of rooftop burglar

Southwest Florida Crime Stoppers is asking for the public’s help identifying and tracking down a man who has burglarized several businesses in Lee County, Florida. 

Over the past month, Lee County has had several rooftop burglaries of restaurants in strip malls.  During the burglaries, the subject gains access to the roof and enters the business via an air conditioning duct.  The subject damages the ceiling tiles and takes cash from the register and main office

We believe the subject drives a dark-colored vehicle, possibly equipped with a ladder.  It is believed that he uses the I-75 corridor to target businesses between the hours of midnight and 4:00 a.m.  At this time, the make/model of the vehicle is unknown.  The subject is a tall, slim, white male wearing a long sleeve hoodie.

Crime Stoppers is asking all business owners to be proactive and vigilant.  The subject is suspected of waiting for businesses to close and then enters from the rooftop. 

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 $3,000.
