MIRAMAR BEACH, Fla— Surveillance video from a home showing a juvenile pulling on door handles lands a 14-year-old behind bars.

On June 30th Walton County Sheriff’s Deputies took multiple reports of vehicle burglaries in the area of Scenic Gulf Drive. In one case, a firearm was stolen out of the center console. The gun was a Smith & Wesson .38 Special.

Surveillance video from a home just blocks away from one of the victim’s residence shows a shirtless, young male pulling on the door handle of a vehicle parked in the driveway.

A person of interest, Rafael Christian Cisneros, 14, was developed after deputies patrolling the area noticed he and other males playing basketball on Daytona Street. Cisneros was wearing a pair of jean pants with dark colored boxers matching the description of the suspect in the video taken from the night of the burglaries.

When confronted with the case, Cisneros was shown the surveillance video and stated to investigators, ‘you don’t have me on video going in the truck.’ At that time, all Cisneros had been told was that a firearm had been stolen. No vehicle description was ever given.

The same day, July 3rd, Cisneros’ father turned over the stolen Smith and Wesson pistol.

Rafael Cisneros was charged with armed burglary and grand theft of a firearm – both are felonies.
