Sacred Chance Vigil, 18, Jawan Artez Moorer, 17, and Javan Khyree Morgan, 17, were arrested early Sunday.

CRESTVIEW — Three teenagers were arrested on multiple burglary and weapons charges after authorities say they entered a home and took several thousand dollars worth of items while a victim was asleep.

Sacred Chance Vigil, 18, Jawan Artez Moorer, 17, and Javan Khyree Morgan, 17, were arrested early Sunday. According to their arrest reports from the Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office, deputies had been conducting patrols in the Crestview area when they spotted “three subjects in dark clothing” walking through yards. Deputies stopped the youths — later identified as Vigil, Moorer and Morgan — and discovered them carrying stolen jewelry and electronics, as well as a loaded magazine with 9 mm ammunition in Moorer’s hoodie.

A Hi-Point 9mm handgun fitting the magazine was found on the ground where the defendants had been standing when deputies contacted them.

After detaining the teens, investigators learned the suspects “conspired together to burglarize the residence” on Edgewood Place. They tried to enter the home through a back window as evidenced by freshly damaged window screens, deputies reported. They then went in through the back door and stole numerous items including jewelry, clothing, shoes, a laptop computer, watches, glasses and other items totaling more than $5,000.

The victims, including one asleep in the home, identified the recovered property as theirs. 

Moorer had been armed with the 9mm handgun and a folding knife, according to the reports. Morgan and Vigil “were aware of his possession of the concealed firearm during the crime,” deputies said. 

Morgan was armed with a large fixed blade knife with metallic knuckles, according to the Sheriff's Office.

None of the suspects has a concealed carry permit, according to the reports.

The teens admitted to the burglary, but each had different stories about how it occurred. Vigil said the stolen property came from vehicle burglaries throughout Crestview, deputies reported. Moorer admitted to being on the victims’ property, but said he did not know how they came to have the stolen items. Morgan admitted to planning the burglary and being at the home while one of the other boys entered it as he looked out.

Vigil, Moorer and Morgan were charged with using/displaying a firearm during the commission of a felony, armed burglary and grand theft more than $5,000.
