NUMEROUS CARS DAMAGED IN CYPRESS CROSSINGS; SUSPECT ADMITS TO MORE THAN 40 CASES OF CRIMINAL MISCHIEF SPANNING FOUR YEARS
March 6, 2019
SANTA ROSA BEACH, Fla— A suspect is arrested after implicating himself in more than three dozen criminal mischief cases in Walton County over the last three years.
Between February 23rd and February 28th, multiple criminal mischief cases were reported to Walton County Sheriff’s Office where vehicles were intentionally and maliciously damaged.
In one instance, a victim’s vehicle had damage to both the driver and passenger side door with an “Adidas” shoe print clearly legible.
A subsequent investigation by patrol deputies identified a suspect, Seth Aaron Snowden, 39, of Miramar Beach. Snowden agreed to show deputies a pair of Adidas shoes he was wearing that same day. The imprints from Snowden’s shoes matched the logo left on the damaged vehicles.
A WCSO investigator responded and interviewed Snowden who admitted to damaging multiple vehicles and property around his residence, including previous residences, over the past four years. Snowden told investigators he would do this at least once a month because he, “had something pestering him and the only way for him to stop was to have an outburst.”
This includes instances at Terra Mar Apartments dating back to June 2017.
Snowden is currently charged with three felony counts of criminal mischief and three counts of misdemeanor criminal mischief. Additional charges in more than 40 cases are pending.
