A 38-year-old Naples man is in the Collier County jail, charged with three separate robberies.
 
Deputies say Eduardo Garvin broke the window of a car parked at the Hobby Lobby near Collier Boulevard and Tamiami Trail Tuesday evening.
 
 "There's blood and shattered glass and my glove compartment was gone through and everything," said Melanie Bridger.
 
She was in Hobby Lobby for only 10 minutes while the crime happened.  The blood found in her vehicle helped lead deputies to Garvin a few hours later.
 
Naples police say Garvin admitted to ripping a gold chain off a man at Fleischmann Park March 23rd.  The incident was captured on the park's surveillance cameras.
 
Garvin and another man are also being charged with breaking into a car at Cambier Park in February and removing a purse.
 
Bridger said she just found out her car was part of that crime spree.
 
"You would figure that it was some kids, but after he went on that rampage I was surprised."
 
No one was hurt in any of these incidents.
