LEE COUNTY, Fla. -- A convicted felon who was already in custody on unrelated charges is now charged with two Lee County crimes from late last year.

37-year-old Robert Percoski is facing charges of robbery and attempted robbery.

Investigators say he is the man who robbed a North Fort Myers Circle K store on November 29th.  He is also accused of trying to rob a Regions Bank on N. Cleveland Avenue on December 10th.  In that case, a bank employee standing outside noticed the suspect approaching the bank while wearing a mask.  The employee notified the drive-thru teller to lock the doors.

Authorities say Percoski  is a registered convicted felon, who has been booked into the Lee County Jail 16 times before.  Among his previous crimes are multiple counts of burglary and theft, battery, DUI, hit and run, grand theft auto and drug possession. 

When the robbery charges were served on him Tuesday night, Percoski was already behind bars, serving time relating to a December 22nd arrest for the sale and delivery of heroin, the possession of cocaine, grand theft and driving with a suspended license.
