WALTON COUNTY, Fla— For more than 30 minutes two burglars ransacked a home in Santa Rosa Beach stealing precious items while the owners slept.
On Tuesday, February 25th two men were captured on video surveillance attempting to enter through the front door of a home off Hamon Avenue.
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.
Other items taken from the home include a briefcase with sermons from the last 20 years. The home’s owner is a pastor as a local church.
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.
