Fort Myers police are searching for a man they say tried to rob the Dunkin’ Donuts on U.S. 41 near the Holiday Inn in Fort Myers.
Dunkin’ Donuts manager Valdir Bevaldo said the man tried to break into the shop around 6 a.m. Saturday morning by entering the drive through window. He was wearing a stocking over his face and he threatened to shoot the employees if they didn’t give him money.
Employees called the police, but the man ran off. A Lee County Sheriff’s Office aviation unit was dispatched, along with K9 units, but they were unable to find him.
The man is between 5 feet 7 inches and 5 feet 10 inches tall and was wearing jeans and a blue sweater, Bevaldo said.
