Bank Robbery Suspect Arrested

“I couldn’t be more proud of my deputies and detectives who responded to, and investigated this crime,” stated Sheriff Carmine Marceno. “This rapid arrest again proves the value of the partnership and trust between LCSO and those we serve. Thanks to the support of our community, and good police work, this criminal is behind bars - where he belongs.”

On November 27, 2020, deputies arrived on scene to a just occurred robbery at the MidWestOne bank located at 8690 Gladiolus Drive in Fort Myers.
Deputies immediately established a perimeter and notified the Lee County Sheriff’s Office Violent Crimes Unit.

Detectives arrived and quickly learned that a man walked into the MidWestOne bank and passed the teller an envelope with a note demanding cash. Out of fear, the teller complied and the suspect fled the scene.

Shortly after, deputies responded to the Fifth Third Bank located at 9000 Park Royal Drive in reference to a suspicious person. While speaking with witnesses on scene, they described an individual that matched the robbery suspect.

Following the robbery, SWFL Crime Stoppers utilized surveillance images from both banks to seek the community’s help in identifying him.

Within a few days, detectives fielded tips and identified the robber as Glenn Aiken (DOB 09/09/1984).

Violent Crimes detectives worked around the clock to capture this suspect. He is currently sitting in the Lee County Jail facing felonies for Robbery without a Firearm and Possession of a Bulletproof Vest During Certain Offenses.
