Lee County Sheriff's Office 

Arrest made in Lehigh Acres Family Dollar Shooting
Friday, October 12, 2018

On Thursday, October 11, 2018, at approximately 2:53 p.m., Lee County Sheriff's Office deputies were dispatched to reports of multiple shots having been fired at the Family Dollar store, located at 630 Bell Boulevard, Lehigh Acres.

Patrol deputies quickly secured the scene, and identified the suspect, Michael Gene Scurry (DOB 07/04/2002). Scurry, who lives across the street from Family Dollar, is no stranger to law enforcement, LCSO having previously arrested Scurry for several felony offenses. Deputies immediately located and detained Scurry and secured the area around Scurry’s residence.

Due to the serious nature of the crime, deputies requested Major Crime Unit’s assistance. Based upon information provided by deputies, MCU detectives obtained a search warrant for Scurry’s residence, and discovered two rifles and a handgun hidden in the attic of the house. The rifle and the pistol were identified as stolen during an unrelated vehicle burglary. MCU detectives interviewed Scurry, who was subsequently arrested and charged with Aggravated Assault with a Weapon, Four (4) other Firearm-related offenses, and Vehicle Burglary. Detectives determined this incident is unrelated to any other on-going investigations.

Sheriff Carmine Marceno said “I couldn’t be more proud of the rapid and professional actions by deputies and detectives in this case. We will not tolerate anyone putting others in danger and those that do will be arrested and jailed.”

Lee County Sheriff's Office Press Release: Detectives make multiple arrests in fraud operation

On September 26, 2018, the Lee County Sheriff’s Office Economic Crimes Unit concluded an extensive investigation into numerous fraudulent credit card transactions at local gas stations.

During the investigation, detectives were able to identify members of an elaborate organization that was responsible for cloning credit cards and purchasing high dollar amounts of diesel fuel. The suspects would then transport that fuel, in various vehicles, equipped with illegal, homemade fuel tanks.

With that information, the Economic Crimes Unit, with the assistance of the Highway Interdiction, Auto Theft, Electronic Surveillance and Special Operations Units, as well as the East Criminal Investigations Division, executed simultaneous search warrants on these individuals. Detectives, in turn, seized 135 counterfeit cards, $590 in US currency, a credit card reader, multiple sets of fuel pump keys and two fuel nozzles with attached hoses.

In total, the suspects were found to be in possession of more than 250 cloned credit cards, and made approximately $20,000 in fraudulent charges. Five vehicles were also seized, having been used in their operation.
