Alert deputies put the brakes on a successful getaway for five Fort Walton Beach residents who had just pulled off a burglary at a home in Destin. Units responded to to a house on Harbor Lane Friday morning around 12:20 in reference to a burglary that had just taken place.
The victim says individuals had stolen a safe with coins, jewelry and high-end watches, valued at nearly $25,000. He also said he’d spotted a silver sedan with tinted windows in the area on this day, as well as previous days. This information was quickly broadcast over the radio. A Deputy found two suspects dressed in black running from near the scene and detained them.
A shoe print found at the scene matched one of the suspect’s shoes. An OCSO Corporal then observed the suspect vehicle fleeing across Okaloosa Island and was able to get it stopped in Ft Walton Beach. The safe and property taken from the residence, as well as a ski mask were inside the car.
Three individuals in the vehicle, Brendon Scarver, Cordell Rudolph, and Nigel Frye were arrested, as well as the two individuals, Savion Reed and Jadarrell Sampson, who were seen running from the area. All five face charges of burglary and grand theft.
OCSO supervisors praised the excellent coordination and teamwork of deputies involved.
