Three people have currently been charged in connection with a rash of car burglaries early this


morning at a Destin Condominium Complex that included theft of a firearm.


Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office deputies responded to Islanders Condominiums at 502 Gulf Shore


Drive around 4:30 Wednesday morning and saw multiple people begin to run and jump into a nearby


Chevrolet Tahoe. The vehicle took off, with the driver running two stop signs at approximately 50 mph


before stopping at 720 Gulf Shore Drive.


Deputies say one individual, jumped out and ran while the driver, identified as 15-year old Tremell


Gilbert, also of Fort Walton Beach, moved from the driver’s seat into the passenger seat.


Inside the Tahoe were also 13-year old Keelee Christensen of Fort Walton Beach and 20-year old Jalen


Taylor of Niceville.


Deputies were able to learn the group conspired to commit vehicle burglaries and Christensen, who


stole a gun from an unlocked car, told them she had been instructed to turn over any firearms to Gilbert.


Christensen, Taylor, and Gilbert are charged with being principals to armed vehicle burglary and grand


theft of a firearm.


Gilbert’s charges also include fleeing and eluding a law enforcement officer and driving without a valid


license.


Deputies say the investigation is ongoing. Mug shots were not yet available at the time of release
