Michael Paul Owen, 35, was arrested on two second-degree felony charges of burglary of an occupied residence, one third-degree felony charge of burglary of a vehicle, as well as three counts of petty theft and one count of carrying a concealed weapon, both misdemeanor charges.

Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office responded to a residence on U.S. 90 just east of the new park being built around 7:20 a.m. Tuesday.

Once there, they found Owen who had stolen two sets of keys, one from the ignition of a pickup parked in the driveway, the other from a bowl of keys in the garage.

He had also tried to remove a stereo system from the dashboard of a golf cart without success.

After his arrest, a body search turned up a set of brass knuckles in the pocket of his shorts.

He was placed under arrest and is being held in the Okaloosa County Jail without bond.
