LEE COUNTY, Fla. -- A North Fort Myers man says he allowed a woman down on her luck to stay in his home for a few days, only to find several guns go missing.

According to Southwest Florida Crime Stoppers, the victim says he allowed a woman named “Tiffany” to stay with him for a few days, since she was down on her luck and was homeless. 

After several days, he told the woman that she needed to leave, which she did.  However shortly thereafter, five guns went missing from both his Jose Gasper Drive home, as well as his vehicle. 

Since there were no signs of forced entry, detectives believe the woman only known as “Tiffany” to be the suspected thief. 

She may be staying in the Palmona Park area of North Fort Myers. 

The guns stolen include:

  • Small .22 caliber pistol, silver in color with a black handle
  • .38 caliber semi-automatic Taurus, silver in color
  • .38 caliber snub nose
  • Chrome plated .38 caliber semi-automatic Taurus
  • .22 caliber long barrel revolver

Anyone with information on the identity of the female suspect, and her current whereabouts, as well as the whereabouts of the guns, 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[] or by submitting a tip through the P3Tips mobile app.
