Special to THE CITIZEN , Lehigh Acres Citizen

Southwest Florida Crime Stoppers is asking for the public's help identifying two men who broke into a Lehigh Acres supermarket and stole thousands in cash after prying open an ATM machine.

About 4 a.m. Feb. 16, two men burglarized the El Paso Supermarket, at 5600 Eighth St. W. Once inside, the men, who were armed with knives, managed to pry the store's ATM open. After taking all the cash from the machine, the men turned their focus to a food truck, located outside the business.

After tampering with the padlock, the men made their way inside the truck and quickly took all the cash from the register. They only targeted those items and did not remove any other cash or equipment located inside either location.
