Over the weekend the Lee County Sheriff’s Office responded to a burglary in progress at a home on 4th Way in North Fort Myers. When the cops entered the house they could hear the Florida Man criminal walking in the attic. Also, they found a 5 gallon bucket on the floor under the attic access and insulation on the floor. This Florida man needs to work on his ninja stealth abilities. But he was resourceful in other ways.

The deputies yelled for him to come down out of the attic, but Florida Man did not respond. The cops put a non lethal gas canister into the attic to smoke him out. He buried himself in the insulation with his face against the air duct system to breathe fresh air. No go on the smoke.

So they had to go up there and get him. Keep in mind how hot it gets in a Florida attic. That’s when Florida Man Bruce Davis surrendered. Dude’s covered in itchy insulation and the cops are like “we should take his picture first”. I get it, this pic could make some solid memes.

What was he doing in the house? According to LCSO “A search of the home also revealed a broken window, appliances in use, and tools scattered throughout the residence. ” Appliances in use? Was he making a smoothie? Doing laundry?  This Florida Man criminal was charged with burglary and resisting an officer.
