On April 19, 2015 at approximately 0330 in the morning, John Lawson Fullbright (6-28-84) of Williston became involved in a domestic dispute with his wife. Mrs. Fullbright discovered several images of what she believed to be child pornographic images on his phone, which sparked the dispute. Mrs. Fullbright refused to return the phone to him and contacted law enforcement. Law enforcement seized the phone but weren’t able to arrest John Fullbright, because he had fled to Marion Countybefore deputies arrival.

On April 19, 2015 at approximately 4 pm, John Fullbright, unaware law enforcement had probable cause for his arrest, responded to a request for a statement. Fullbright came to the Levy County Sheriff’s Office and was arrested for domestic battery. Fullbright bonded out of the Levy County Detention Facility on April 20, 2015 after posting a $30,000 bond.

Investigator Tom Martin continued to investigate the allegation Mrs. Fullbright filed about the pornographic images she viewed on her husband’s phone. Investigator Martin secured a search warrant on April 23, 2015 to conduct a forensic analysis of the phone she surrendered to law enforcement. During his search of the phone’s internal memory, he discovered approximately 1,741 images of children between the ages of 2 to 12 in various sexually explicit poses. In addition to these images, Investigator Martin found video clips of children engaged in sexual acts both with adults and other minor children, anime images of children and images of children engaged in sexual acts with animals.

Investigator Martin then secured a warrant for the arrest of John Lawson Fullbright on April 24, 2015. Investigator Martin developed information that Fullbright was in Marion Countyand with the assistance of Marion County Sheriff’s Office attempted to execute the arrest warrant that night. Fullbright could not be located.

On April 27, 2015 at approximately 6 pm Fullbright was surrendered to the Levy County Sheriff’s Office by his attorney Mark Feather. Fullbright is being held at the Levy County Detention Facility on a $250,000 bond.

This investigation is still ongoing and additional charges could be filed. The identities of the victimized children depicted in these images have not been determined. Investigators are continuing to work with outside agencies, such as the National Information Center for Missing and Exploited Children and the FBI, to identify these children.

On Saturday night April 18, 2015 three unidentified males burglarized three businesses in the Town of Bronson. Deputies discovered two of these burglaries while conducting security checks of local businesses. A&A Restaurant and Shakers were the two businesses deputies discovered had been burglarized. Investigators were summoned to these scenes in the early morning hours of Sunday morning and began their investigation. Later Sunday morning, Sweetwater Trading, a retail gun store, was also discovered to have been burglarized.

Investigators recovered evidence leading to the identification of the three suspects. Arrest warrants for Burglary and Grand Theft were obtained for Eric Oliver 12-14-93, and two participating juveniles. On April 20, 2015 Oliver was arrested and is being held at the Levy County Detention Facility on a $400,000.00 bond. One juvenile was arrested on April 24, 2015 and was released to the Department of Juvenile Justice. The second juvenile is still at large.

In addition to these recently reported cases, a fourth burglary at the Church of Godby Faith, reported in March of this year, was also cleared. A fourth juvenile identified in this case was arrested on April 24, 2015. He too, was released to the Department of Juvenile Justice. 

These recent arrests do not solve all the reported burglary cases in the Town of Bronson. Our investigators are still diligently working to solve these break-ins. Any person with knowledge of these past crimes, who could offer information which would lead to the identification of the person(s) responsible, is asked to contact Investigator Noel Ramirez at 352-486-5111 or contact Crime-Stoppers to remain anonymous at 1-877-349-8477.
