2nd Meth Lab Discovered near Chiefland

In a period of less than 48 hours,
the Levy County Sheriff’s Office has located and dismantled a second
methamphetamine lab in the Chiefland area. LCSO Drug Task Force Investigators
discovered this lab at 7751 NW 115 Street in Chiefland, and were able to render
the site safe. This investigation led to the arrest of Rowdy Elton McCall
6-7-85 who is being held at the Levy County Detention Facility on a $75,000
bond. Investigators work continuously to locate and put these operations out of
business.
The dangerous and volatile
chemical components used to manufacture the substance; which is then ingested
by various methods, create one of the most hazardous conditions for officers to
work in. The LCSO is dedicated to locating and arresting the individuals who
are making this deadly drug and ask our citizens to report any suspicious
activity to Crime Stoppers at 1-877-349-8477.

3 Arrested for Armed Robbery

 Sylvia Chisolm 11-8-83
 Billie Jo Grant 1-13-82
Richard Hall 12-14-59

April 29, 2014
On April 25, 2014 at
approximately 10:45 PM Levy County Deputies responded to the Waco 6 convenience store located at 8731 NW
174 Street in Fanning Springs. The clerk reported an unclothed Hispanic male
ran into his store requesting help. With the aid of interpreters, Deputies
determined the male had been the recent victim of a robbery. The robbers had
taken his clothing which contained his wallet filled with approximately $1,000
in cash.
The subsequent investigation led
to the identification of three robbers, one male identified as Richard Hall
12-14-59 and who is a registered sex offender; and two females, Billie Jo Grant
1-13-82 and Sylvia Chisolm 11-8-83. The investigation revealed the trio planned
the robbery earlier in the evening. Their plan was for the females to find a
Hispanic male, lure him to a home and into a bedroom. The females were to
promise him sexual acts and when he got undressed, the male who was waiting in
an adjacent room and armed with a machete, was to take his clothing.
Their plan was executed, but with
one flaw. The Hispanic male knew these ladies. With the assistance of the
interpreter, investigators were able to quickly locate and arrest all three
suspects.    
Hall is being held at the Levy
County Detention Facility charged with Robbery and his bond has been set at
$100,000. Chisolm was also arrested for Robbery and is being held in Levy County
on a $75,000 bond. Grant was located in Gilchrist County
and arrested on an unrelated charge. The charge of Robbery for her involvement
in this crime has been forwarded to the State Attorney’s Office and a warrant
is pending.

Road Closed

Road Closed
NW 46 Lane –  Fowlers Bluff
April 29, 2014
The Levy County Sheriff’s Office
is notifying citizens that NW 46th
Lane, the main entrance to Fowlers Bluff, at the intersection of NW 152 Ave., has been
closed to vehicular traffic. As the Suwannee
River continues to rise
above flood level, this road has been affected. Currently there is
approximately 8” of water covering the road. Vehicular traffic will be
restricted to residents only as they attempt to protect their properties from
the rising water.
A message board will be placed at
the intersection of NW 46th
Lane and CR 347 alerting travelers of this
closure. On-lookers are asked to avoid this area of Levy County
as the wake produced by their vehicles will cause damage to the homes located
along this road. Additionally, traveling on flooded roadways places the driver
and any occupants of the vehicle in unnecessary danger.
Any questions regarding the current
conditions of the Suwannee River in and around Levy
County can be answered by visiting the
Levy County Emergency
Operations Center
web site at www.levydisaster.com or
contacting them directly at 352-486-5212.
