DESTIN, Fla. (WKRG) — Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office says five men are in custody after a home robbery in Destin early Friday morning.

The victim spotted a silver sedan with tinted windows in the area on the day of the robbery and the previous day.

A deputy saw two of the suspects matching the victim’s description and linked a matching shoe print to one of them.

Inside the vehicle were Fryer, Scarver, and Rudolph who were arrested on scene as well as the safe that was stolen from the house. Reed and Sampson were arrested by the deputy that matched the foot print.

All five are charged with burglary and grand theft.
