Lee County Sheriff’s Office seeks assistance in identifying robbery suspect
The Lee County Sheriff’s Office is seeking help in identifying the gunman who held up a Fort Myers drug store.
The office received a 911 call at 10:14 a.m. Tuesday in reference to an attempted armed robbery of the CVS Pharmacy at 9170 Daniels Parkway.
Responding deputies were told by witnesses a white male wearing a dark blue or grey hooded sweatshirt had gone to the pharmacy counter and demanded drugs. The man stated he had a gun. When the would-be robber was not given the drugs, he fled, officials said.

Officials have released photos of the suspect.
