Deadly Crack on the Streets of Williston

July 3, 2014
Levy County Department of Public
Safety and LCSO Deputies responded to East Williston
shortly before midnight last night. Several reports were made concerning individuals
suffering from violent seizures, high blood pressure and foaming at the mouth
after falling unconscious. Five people were transported to nearby medical
facilities after falling ill. Two additional people refused medical aid and two
more were not located at the scene when deputies/EMS arrived.
Investigators determined a
subject known by the street name “Minute” had been selling crack cocaine laced
with an unknown substance. The subjects transported, two black males in their
50’s, one white male in his 30’s, a male in his 60’s and one black female in
her 30’s are still being monitored by emergency staff. The substance has not
been identified.
LCSO and Levy County Department
Public Safety are urging everyone to exercise extreme caution. Not only could
you be arrested and jailed for possession of crack cocaine, citizens are taking
huge life safety risks by smoking these unknown illegal substances.
