On September 3rd, at around 2:00 p.m., Florida Highway Patrol troopers arrived at the scene of an accident in Okaloosa County involving a sedan and another car. Officials say the sedan struck the other vehicle near the intersection of SR-293 and Legendary Marina Drive after that vehicle stopped due to a traffic backup, according to WJHG. The source says the driver and passenger of the sedan both from Montgomery, AL, had to be transported to a hospital in Destin as they both suffered minor injuries. The passenger of the vehicle was eight months pregnant.
After the collision, officials began taking inventory of the sedan and that is when they came across approximately $2,000 worth of items from Bath and Body Works along with an anti-theft device remover. After discovering the items, FHP troopers contacted deputies with the Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office who informed them that they had been actively investigating a theft at a Bath and Body Works. After surveying the items, deputies confirmed with FHP troopers that several of the items discovered in the sedan matched the description of those that were stolen.
Officials believe some of the items “could be linked to a string of thefts at various Bath and Body Works locations.” Deputies with the Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office then seized the items began conducting an investigation into the matter.
