FORT MYERS, Fla. -- Southwest Florida Crime Stoppers is asking for your help identifying two men believed to be responsible for at least two business burglaries. 
 
Deputies responded to an alarm call at Tropical Self Storage off Palm Beach Boulevard early Monday morning. At the scene, deputies found an axe was used to shatter the front glass door. It's believed the men left empty handed and just minutes later, they think the same men used an axe to smash through the front door of Sir Pizza. 
 
Once inside, the men immediately went to the restaurant's safe, striking it with an ax to pry it open.  The men took a cash register from the parlor and items from the safe. 
 
Surveillance cameras captured both men wearing masks and gloves breaking into the parlor after a white heavyset woman wearing a bandana and purple long sleeved shirt.
 
They are described as white males, with a slim build, accompanied at both scenes by a white heavyset female, who wore a bandana and a purple long sleeved shirt.  The trio took off in a newer model white Dodge four door sedan.
 
Anyone with information on the identities of the suspects, and their current whereabouts, 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.southwestfloridacrimestoppers.com or by texting a tip to CRIMES (274637) Keyword: REWARD.
