It’s like something out of a movie. A Cohen Brothers movie!
A few days ago, a young man walked into a Bonita Springs 7-11 with a shirt wrapped around his face. He wanted to hold the place up, but didn’t have a weapon, and tried to use his finger to scare the clerks. Maybe he meant to put it in his pocket, but whatever the case, he wasn’t too scary because they could see that all he had was a finger that he was waving around! He didn’t get any money, but trying to rob a store is still a crime and deputies are still on the lookout for the attempted robber!
The convenience store on Beau Dr. in North Fort Myers got hit twice in less than a week last spring. This week it got hit again. It was a 7-11, but changed recently to a Mobil on the Run.. but the change apparently didn’t ward off the bad juju of the location.
Surveillance of Beau Robberies
It appears they’ve changed camera locations, and for some reason, the image is reversed in media reports… so I flipped it for comparison. I would not want to work in this shop. The clerk’s records indicate that one robber, Kyle Orr pled guilty to two robberies and was sentenced to 60 months in prison.
I wouldn’t want to work at the 7-11 on Beau Drive in North Fort Myers. They were hit by an armed robber at 1:15 a.m. on Tuesday morning. Then another armed robber struck on Friday night in the same 7-11. Both were armed with guns and made off with undisclosed amounts of cash.

Second Tuesday Robbery Footage
If it weren’t apparent from the pictures, it wasn’t the same guy. In fact, law enforcement arrested a suspect from the first robbery on Friday, before the second time the store was hit. Kyle Orr has been charged in that robbery, and another one that occurred later in the morning on Tuesday. In the second robbery, on the other side of town, deputies allege that he pulled the second robbery without wearing a mask. Orr has also

been arrested on additional theft charges, and a possible warrant out of Georgia. Judge for yourself if he looks like the guy in the surveillance. The clothing from the two robberies certainly seems to match. There is a Crimestoppers reward out for information on the second robber.
