According to law enforcement in Florida, one father was able to prevent the kidnapping of his daughter by a group of unintelligent and violent criminal savages.
The four thugs were arrested after authorities said that they devised a plan in order to kidnap and rob members of a Baker, Florida family Tuesday night.
Unfortunately for the animals who thought they'd succeed, their efforts didn’t go as planned, according to the Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office.
The would-be criminals were armed with a knife, several firearms, and a roll of duct tape, the Sheriff’s Office said.
Sheriff's Deputies said that they also found latex gloves, facial masks, and dark clothing inside the SUV the criminals were driving.
The Sheriff’s Office said their Deputies responded to a call at around 10:30 PM on Tuesday about an active home invasion and robbery which was in progress at a residence located on Preservation Path in Baker.

Deputies said that the 51-year-old homeowner told them his 17-year-old daughter had called him to tell him that someone had blocked the road in which leads to their house with barrels.
She was on her way home when she noticed it, and instead of getting out of her car, she drove around the barrels.
Back at their house, the father heard his dogs barking and saw his front motion-activated floodlights come on, as well as saying that he also heard what sounded like his car door closing.
This prompted the man to head into his firearms cabinet to grab a loaded gun.
According to Okaloosa County Sheriff's Deputies, the homeowner saw a group of black thugs trying to force their way into his garage, so he fired three shots at the vile creatures and they then took off running into the woods.

Apparently, the suspects had unscrewed some of his security lights in an effort to commit their crime unnoticed.
A nearby neighbor also saw a suspicious car near her house and called in the description of the vehicle to Deputies, who then spotted the 2016 white Jeep Liberty on Highway 4, and Deputies then stopped the Jeep and found the four criminals inside.
Deputies identified them as 19-year old Keilon Johnson, 17-year old Austin French, 16-year old Tyree Johnson and 15-year old Kamauri Horn, all of Crestview, Florida.
The group of thugs had planned to kidnap the teenage daughter by forcing her out of her car by blocking the road with the barrels and garbage cans, investigators said.
They then planned to head to her house, confront her, subdue her father, who they believed to be wealthy, and rob the home, according to the Sheriff’s Office.
Now each of the animals is charged with attempted kidnapping, attempted the home invasion, and robbery.
19-year-old Keilon Johnson was booked into the Okaloosa County Jail. The other three, being underage, were transferred to a Department of Juvenile Justice Facility.
They will have a court date later this month, but they're lucky they weren't killed in the process of committing these crimes.
Some people just aren't fit for American society.
