Police are seeking the public's help in identifying two thieves who stole from a North Fort Myers home on Saturday.

They took more than $75,000 worth of guns and jewelry from a home on Palm Isle Drive.

His next-door neighbors said they were home when it happened, but didn’t hear anything.

“I did not sleep at all last night,” said Jane Pfeiffenberger.

It happened just after 3 a.m. Saturday morning. A police report said the man’s security cameras caught the men using a crowbar to pry open the front door.

“I’m often up and looking out [the window], and that would have been extremely frightening to see that," Pfeiffenberger said.

Then men then rummaged through drawers, file cabinets, and two locked safes before leaving through a sliding glass door.

The suspects got away with firearms, the victim's late partners jewelry, and prescription medications totaling more than $75,000.

Pfeiffenberger said she’s surprised the men robbed her neighbor because he has such an advanced security system.

“He has the best camera system, the best locks. He has all of the security systems to typically prevent this,” Pfeiffenberger said.

If you recognize them from the surveillance photos below, or have any other helpful information, you're urged to contact SWFL Crimestoppers at 1-800-780-8477. 

Southwest Florida Crime Stoppers is offering an up to $3,000 reward for anyone who comes forward with information. The victim said he plans on providing another $1,000 on top of that.
