The Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office has charged a Destin man with burglary after a woman arriving home from work spotted him inside her house.
19-year old Jonathan Charles Berger, no known address, was taken into custody as short time later hiding inside a nearby home.
A Pine Ridge Trace homeowner says she pulled into her driveway around 9 a.m. Tuesday morning to see Berger inside her house. When he spotted her, he ran out a sliding glass door and jumped a fence.
Deputies and a K-9 unit responded to the scene and found Berger sitting inside a living room at a home on Wedge Court.
Investigators are working to determine if Berger is responsible for a second reported burglary on Pine Ridge Trace that was also discovered today.
