Teacher’s tip leads to arrest in NFM High break-in

Published: Updated:

NORTH FORT MYERS, Fla. — A tip from a teacher who recognized a man caught on surveillance video as an employee from a McDonald’s restaurant on Pine Island Road led police to arrests of two accused of a North Fort Myers High School break-in, authorities said.

The two men and one other allegedly drove the golf carts over the school’s baseball field earlier this month, causing extensive damage, according to an earlier Southwest Florida Crime Stoppers press release.

The teacher identified one of the men on the surveillance video as 23-year-old Tyler Matthew Glover, the Lee County Sheriff’s Office said. Managers at the McDonald’s confirmed to detectives that it was Glover in the video.

Deputies arrested Glover at his home. His statements to police in turn led to the arrest of Casey Duane Krontz, 25, whom Glover identified from the footage.

Glover faces two grand theft charges and one burglary charge. Krontz faces four grand theft charges, three burglary charges and one charge for possession of bolt cutters used in the burglary.
