Lee County tax collectors office in Lehigh Acres

Deputies are investigating a break-in at the Lee County Tax Collector’s Office in Lehigh Acres near Lee and Sunshine boulevards.

The building was blocked off with crime scene tape Friday morning as they spoke to employees of the office to gather more information.

A spokesperson confirmed there was a break-in after business hours. However, they said they cannot release any more information since the investigation is still active.

They are working to get the facility back up and running and will do their own assessment after the Lee County Sheriff’s Office is done before deciding when to reopen.

LCSO has only told us that it is an active investigation.

The location was closed for the entire day, anyone trying to use the tax collectors office was told to visit a different location.
