DEFUNIAK SPRINGS — A juvenile wanted on more than a dozen felony charges is back in Walton County after being picked up by the Transportation Safety Administration trying to fly back into the country from Israel.
Seven suspects were thought responsible for more than 50 car burglaries in Walton County in September, which included five stolen handguns from unlocked vehicles. Three of the guns were later recovered.
Six arrests were made regarding 49 vehicle burglaries that occurred between August and September 2017. One additional suspect was identified as Elden Moshae Boskila, 14, but he left the country for Israel before investigators could reach him for questioning. More than 20 warrants were issued for his arrest.
On Dec. 17, Boskila was identified by TSA Agents at George Bush Intercontinental Airport in Houston, Texas, trying to get back into the country. Houston Police Department officers took him into custody and he was booked into the Harris County Juvenile Probation Department.
Boskila was extradited to Walton County on Dec. 22 on 44 charges including multiple counts of armed burglary, burglary and grand theft of a firearm. The Walton County Sheriff's Office said in a statement they chose to publicize the information based on the severity of Boskila's crimes and his criminal record, even though he is a juvenile.
