LEE COUNTY, Fla. — The home of a Florida Representative, Spencer Roach, in North Fort Myers is now an active crime scene.

On Thursday, Roach spoke with Fox 4 about what led to him calling the Lee County Sheriff's Office.

Roach said it started by him cleaning the playroom in the front of his home.

“I didn't really think anything of it at the time but as I started to clean up a little bit I noticed what appeared to be a bullet hole,” said Roach.

The Lee County Sheriff's Office (LCSO) says crime scene tape is surrounding the home and investigators are looking at a hole in a window.

Roach told Fox 4 he's had violent incidents happen at his home on Orange Grove Boulevard since he moved there five years ago.

“I have had my mailbox destroyed probably about five times since I lived here. I had a dead animal thrown up into the driveway,” said Roach.
