OCSO Asks for Help Identifying Man Seen Near Burglarized Business

The Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office is seeking the public’s help identifying a man seen outside Islanders Coastal Outfitters at the Okaloosa Island BoardWalk on June 9th just prior to a burglary that took place at the store.

Surveillance video shows the man, who was accompanied by a woman and juvenile female, walking nearby when an object was placed over one of the security cameras. He’s later seen again entering the area with a black bag over his shoulder.

OCSO investigators say more than 12-thousand dollars in Oakley and Smith Optics sunglasses were stolen from the store after a lock was pried open.

Anyone with information on the man’s identity is asked to contact the OCSO at 850-651-7400 or Emerald Coast Crime Stoppers at 850-863-TIPS, emeraldcoastcrimestoppers.com, or by using the P3 Tips Mobile application.
