Robert Black (DOB 3/16/89) – wanted in Lee County for violation of probation for burglary, petit theft, dealing in stolen property and providing false information to a pawnbroker.

He stole multiple items from a family member and then pawned them off at a local shop for pennies on the dollar.

However, because he used his legitimate ID for the transactions, it didn’t take police long to track Black right back to the thefts.

The family member claimed that Black had stolen from them before. To date, he has eight bookings on his rap sheet for drug possession, theft, fraud, DUI, disturbing the peace and multiple burglaries.

He is 6’1”, 215 pounds and was last known to be living in North Fort Myers and upon his arrest, he will be held without bond.
