“My incredible team of detectives are dedicated to fighting crime and making sure you feel safe in Lee County,” stated Sheriff Carmine Marceno. “Their excellent work with this investigation, spanning multiple incidents, ended with two known criminals taken to jail where they belong.”On May 6, 2021, at approximately 6:37 a.m., the Lee County Sheriff’s Office was alerted to a just occurred theft of a green Ford F-150 from a home in Lehigh Acres. While responding units received information from the dispatcher, a deputy observed a green truck matching the same description driving on Beth Stacey Boulevard. The driver and passenger riding in the stolen truck sped off from the deputy, and turned onto 23rd Street Southwest. Their evasive maneuver resulted in a head-on crash with another driver who was seriously injured and taken to the hospital. When deputies arrived to the crash they detained, and immediately identified the suspects as Roderick Mitchell (DOB 3/1/2002) and Jacob Sobolewski (DOB 2/6/2002). They were taken to the hospital. As detectives investigated the active scene, they received reports of multiple car break-ins in neighborhoods nearby where the green truck was stolen. As their investigation continued, it was determined Mitchell and Sobolewski burglarized 11 cars earlier that morning. The pair stole three guns, cash, wallets, and other valuables. Once Mitchell and Sobolewski were medically cleared from the hospital, they were arrested and taken to the Lee County Jail. Mitchell and Sobolewski are each being charged with Grand Theft of a Motor Vehicle, 11 counts of Burglary of a Conveyance, 2 counts of Armed Burglary of a Conveyance, 3 counts of Grand Theft of a Firearm, and 5 counts of Petit Theft. ...
