While most teens are sleeping or up early getting ready for school on a weekday, others are prowling neighborhoods and burglarizing vehicles.
Four teens ranging in age from 13 to 16 were arrested by Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office deputies in Crestview Wednesday morning after deputies responded to reports of suspicious activity around 5 a.m.
According to deputies, a homeowner said he noticed a flashlight outside his window and saw two teens burglarizing his pick-up truck. When he went outside, the pair ran away.

A short time later, deputies spotted five teens at a park, who all tried to flee, but with the assistance of the Crestview Police Department, four were taken into custody.
