Southwest Florida Crime Stoppers is asking for the public’s help identifying and tracking down an armed man who robbed a Lehigh Acres 7-Eleven store early Tuesday.

According to LCSO, the man entered the 7-Eleven store, located at 4325 Lee Blvd., just after 4:30 a.m., with a semi-automatic handgun. After firing several shots, he demanded all the cash from the register. The clerk complied and handed over an unknown amount of cash, after which the suspect fled on foot southbound toward Gunnery Road. No injuries were reported.

The man is believed to be between 20 and 30 years old, approximately 5’10” with shoulder-length dreads with blonde tips and shells at the end. He was last seen wearing a black long-sleeved shirt, khaki pants and a black facemask.

Anyone with information on the identity and whereabouts of this suspect, who should be considered armed and dangerous, 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.
