FORT MYERS, Fla. -- Four in Your Corner is pressing for answers as Lee County deputies investigate a home invasion robbery in Tice on Friday morning.

Deputies say it happened inside a home on Scott Avenue at Prospect Avenue. Fox 4 was there as investigators searched for a suspect with K-9's and a helicopter.

Deputies have released very few details about the case, but according to witnesses we spoke with, the suspect broke in through the back door and robbed a person inside.

At one point, deputies detained a person nearby in connection with this case, but that person was released a short-time later.

As soon as we learn any new information, we'll be sure to update.
