Search is on for casino robbers

Southwest FloridaCrime Stoppers is asking for the public’s help identifying two masked men who robbed a Lehigh Acres casino last night.

According to detectives, two masked men entered the Luxxor Games, located at 3096 Lee Boulevard, shortly before 9:30 p.m. on Saturday, July 26.  One of the robbers pulled out a gun and fired a single shot into the air, while the other commanded everyone to lie on the floor.  One of the suspects immediately went to the cashier demanding all the money in the till.  After throwing the woman to the ground, she handed over the deposit bags, containing an undisclosed amount of cash.  The men quickly left the building, and although K-9 and aviation units were deployed, the men managed to escape.

Both are described as black males in their late teens to early 20s, thin build, approximately 5’8”, wearing all dark clothing and masks to cover their faces.

Anyone with information on the identity and whereabouts of these armed robbers 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 $1,000.  Tips may also be made online at www.swflcrimestoppers.org or by texting a tip to CRIMES (274637) Keyword: REWARD.
