Sheriff’s Office asks for public help in finding burglars
SANTA ROSA BEACH—For more than 30 minutes, two burglars ransacked a home Tuesday in Santa Rosa Beach stealing the owners’ property while they slept.
Two men were captured on video surveillance attempting to enter through the front door of a home off Hamon Avenue, according to a press release from the Walton County Sheriff’s Office.
Between 2:56 am and 3:38 am, the subjects removed items within the residence after breaking into a back window and can be seen using the front door to bring stolen items to a vehicle.
While removing items from the home, the subjects became armed with swords, making this an armed occupied residential burglary, according to the press release.
Other items taken from the home include a briefcase with sermons from the last 20 years.
Walton County Sheriff’s Office is asking for the public’s help in identifying these men.
One of the subjects in the video appears to be a male wearing a black mask who has a distinctive tattoo, possibly a cross, on his upper arm.
The other is described as a white male with red facial hair wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt.
Anyone with information regarding the identity or whereabouts of these two men is asked to call the Walton County Sheriff’s Office at (850) 892-8186 or remain anonymous by calling Emerald Coast Crime Stoppers at 850- 863-TIPS.
