DESTIN, Fla. (WALA)-- According to OCSO, deputies stopped a successful getaway for five Fort Walton Beach residents who had just pulled off a burglary at a home in Destin.
Units responded 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.

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.
