Deputies are looking for an unknown suspect who burglarized a home on Carlton Avenue in Lehigh Acres on Thursday.

According to the Lee County Sheriff’s Office, a person seen in security footage with their face hidden is a suspect in a residential burglary, grand theft and criminal mischief that occurred in the 2400 block of Carlton Avenue North. At around 10:15 a.m., the suspect was seen on surveillance walking around the home to see if anyone was home before breaking a window and leaving the area in a white work van with double rear doors.

Shortly after 3 p.m., the suspect returned on a bicycle and entered the residence through the previously broken window. The suspect possibly lives in the area.
