INDIAN RIVER COUNTY -- Georgia police have arrested suspects who may have been involved with an armed robbery at an electronics store in Vero Beach last week.
A press release from the Indian River County Sheriff's Office said four suspects are in custody in Camden County, Ga., after the Brevard County Sheriff's Office put out a "be on the lookout" request for a vehicle used in an armed robbery in Titusville.
Indian River County Sheriff's deputies are investigating whether the suspects some of the same ones that robbed the GameStop store at 6310 20th St., Vero Beach, at 10:30 a.m. on Feb. 19.
The vehicle stopped, a white Dodge Durango, fits the description of a vehicle seen on surveillance video from a store near GameStop, said Sgt. Thomas Raulen, public information officer for the local sheriff's office.
According to police reports, two armed suspects, one with a rifle or shotgun and the other with a handgun, tied up a male GameStop employee and left him in the back office. One suspect removed the video surveillance device and attempted to destroy it, a press release said.
Two customers entered the store while the robbery was in progress, but did not realize a robbery was occurring.
The report goes on to state that one of the suspects was carrying a large box and indicated to the customers an employee would be able to help them shortly.
The employee, whose name was not released at press time, was able to free himself and suffered no injuries, but was shaken from the experience.
