GAMEOVER Agents Arrest Rockledge Homicide Suspect
BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – Members of the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office GAMEOVER Task Force located and arrested murder suspect Ricky Adams Glasco of Rockledge on Thursday at 8:45 a.m.
Sheriff’s Agents secured the residence at 1317 Canterbury Lane in Rockledge at which time Glasco, 41, complied with the agents and was arrested without incident at approximately 8:45 a.m.
The arrest is related to the incident last Monday evening when the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office received information from the Rockledge Police Department that a shooting had occurred in the 900 block of Virginia Avenue, an unincorporated area of Rockledge.
Upon arrival, deputies found 26-year-old Steven Matthew Jackson Jr. of Melbourne, inside a vehicle suffering from multiple gunshot wounds. The victim was transported to a local medical facility in critical condition where he later died from his injuries. The Brevard County Medical Examiner’s Office determined his death to be Homicide.
On Wednesday, Sheriff’s Office agents then obtained an arrest warrant for Glasco for First Degree Premeditated Murder, Robbery with a Firearm and Possession of a Firearm by a Convicted Felon.
“I could not be more proud of the members of our Homicide and Crime Scene Units who quickly solved this case along with the continued efforts of the GAME OVER Task Force who face the worst of the worst every day to protect our communities,” said Sheriff Wayne Ivey.
“Today’s arrest is yet another example of how effective this Multi-Agency partnership is at targeting the violent offenders who refuse to abide by the law and prey upon our citizens. I would also like to thank the incredible efforts of Rockledge Police Officer Brett Leib and Sheriff’s Office Deputy Daniel McMahon, who immediately rendered life-saving aid while speaking with the victim. Their quick actions eased the condition of the victim who had been shot approximately 16 times at close range, allowing him the opportunity to identify his attacker before passing.”
