A call in reference to suspicious activity on Poverty Creek Road in north Okaloosa County led to the arrest of four Crestview residents suspected of stealing packages off a front porch. Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office deputies say an alert neighbor spotted two suspicious people go onto his neighbor’s porch around 3:30 p.m. January 7th and then return to their car carrying a package or packages.
The description of the car, a white or silver Toyota Prius with black rims matched the description of a vehicle involved in a previous package theft. A deputy spotted a car matching that description on Airport Road coming from the direction of Poverty Creek Road. After making a U-turn he spotted boxes lying along the side of that road as well as Barton Road.
Following a traffic stop, deputies say one of the suspects said they found the packages on the side of the road. Deputies however found stolen items inside the car ranging from work lights and cell phone chargers to fishing gear, along with labels removed from the stolen boxes.
Deputies arrested 17-year old Victoria Clark, 26-year old Blake Seinko, and 18-year old Brent Sienko on charges of burglary, petty theft, and tampering with evidence. Clark is also charged with possession of marijuana. 20 year old Zane Hall is charged with burglary and petty theft
