LEE COUNTY, Fla — Southwest Florida Crimestoppers need your help identifying a trio they say have been targeting convenience stores and stealing lottery tickets.

Investigators say they have been hitting stores throughout Lee County over the last few weeks.

Two of the suspects would walk in and distract the clerk with a question, according to deputies.

They say the third suspect would quietly crouch down behind the counter and grab a lot of lottery tickets.

If you know who these people are or have any information, you can call 1-800-780-TIPS (8477).
