Southwest Florida Crime Stoppers is searching for information on a burglary at The Standard Restaurant in Fort Myers.

According to Crime Stoppers, detectives are looking for two men wanted for burglary and grand theft at The Standard Restaurant on South Cleveland Avenue on Saturday.

Based on the video, the sheriff’s office doesn’t consider this to be a random crime. The men went to the restaurant when they knew no one would be there, knew the layout of the restaurant and didn’t care if other cars were in the area.

The break-in happened around 3 a.m. on Saturday. They entered the restaurant using a crowbar and stole some of the restaurant’s cash and office supplies.

Deputies are still working to determine how much money was taken. Based on the crime, Crime Stoppers manager Trish Routte said the duo knew exactly what to do.

“He intended to go to that particular spot. There’s a lot of businesses along 41, especially in that plaza that he could have chosen. He’s specifically targeted this Standard restaurant,” she said.

If you have any information on this burglary, contact SWFL Crime Stoppers at 1-800-780-8744. You can also submit tips online or on the P3 Tips mobile app. Remember, you can remain anonymous and be eligible for a reward.
