Glenn Carjaval, GameStop robbery suspect surrenders

INDIAN RIVER COUNTY — The man wanted for robbing a GameStop store in Vero Beach last week turned himself in to authorities Thursday after allegedly committing the same crime in West Palm Beach, the Indian River County Sheriff's Office said.

Glenn Carjaval, 34, who has no current address, was charged for robbery with a deadly weapon and two counts of third-degree grand theft for the Oct. 10 crime at the GameStop location in the 6300 block of 20th Street, Vero Beach.

The Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office plans to charge him for a robbery at another location for the video game store chain.

Investigators in Brevard County are considering Carjaval as a suspect in a GameStop robbery there last week.

Carjaval was listed as homeless on the Indian River County Jail website. He has a previous address in Vero Beach, but may have been living in his car in Brevard, said Indian River Sheriff's spokesman Sgt. Thom Raulen.

Detectives said Carjaval walked into the Vero Beach GameStop wearing shades, a black hat with a spider logo and a New York Jets jersey.

He passed a note to the clerk demanding cash and showed a handgun tucked in the waist of his pants, Raulen said.

Investigators sent out the gunman's photo through news outlets and social media.

"Our detective said he came back the next day and had at least five tips that identified the suspect by name," Raulen said.

The Sheriff's Office this week prepared a warrant for Carjaval's arrest before the Palm Beach robbery Thursday, Raulen said.

Carjaval turned himself into the Vero Beach Police Department Thursday night.

Carjaval was being held at the jail in lieu of $550,000 bail Friday.
