Frederick Price

     A joint investigation between the Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office and Fort Walton Beach Police Department has led to the arrests of two more suspects in Monday morning’s armed home invasion at 813 Miramar Street in Mary Esther.

     19-year old Fredrick “Freddie” Montrez  Price of 821 Cardinal Street, Lot #5, Fort Walton Beach is charged with armed home invasion and attempted homicide. 21-year old Justin Brian Green of 1644 East Selma Street in Dothan Alabama is charged with armed home invasion. Both Price and Green also admitted taking part in an earlier armed home invasion in the City of Fort Walton Beach.

     Investigators say Price and Green kicked in the front door at 813 Miramar Street around 4:20 a.m. July 14th, made those inside get on the floor and began yelling “Where is it?” Price then hit a 14-year old boy in the head with a gun, put it to the child’s head, threatened to kill him, and pulled the trigger four times. The gun did not go off but a bullet fell out and was recovered by deputies who say the primer had been struck.

     Price and Green fled the home when law enforcement officers arrived.

Price suffered a deep cut to his right hand finger after breaking a bedroom window while running away.

     Investigators say both defendants admitted entering the home with the intention of stealing money and drugs.

     Prior to their arrests, the Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office charged 20-year old Nicole Myers of Fort Walton Beach with being a principal to armed home invasion. (See earlier news release.)
