Arson Arrests Made

 

November 25, 2014

On November 24, 2014 at
approximately 6:19 AM, Deputies from the Levy County Sheriff’s Office responded
to the business known as “Rivals Bar” in the Town of Inglis to a reported fire.  Firefighters from the Levy County Department
of Public Safety and investigators from the State Fire Marshal’s Office also
responded.  The business was located at
439 Highway 40 West, Inglis,
Florida. 

Deputies soon learned from the
Fire Marshal Investigators that they had determined that the fire had been
deliberately set.  Two firefighters from
the LCDPS were injured while fighting the fire. 
Investigators discovered that an unknown quantity of alcoholic beverages
and the bar cash register had been stolen prior to the fire being set.  The building was a total loss. 

Investigative Sergeant Mike
Narayan, Investigators Mike Wilkinson and Zeb Richburg and other responding
deputies quickly located several witnesses. 
Based on information provided by witnesses, the investigators interviewed
Jordan Michael Cooper (3/25/93).  Cooper
gave information that implicated himself along with Travis Evan Crabb (4/29/82)
as the perpetrators who set the fire. 

LCSO investigators were able to
obtain an arrest warrant for Crabb.  The
warrant was executed in Alachua County during the morning hours of November 25, 2014
with the assistance of the U.S.
Marshals Regional Fugitive Task Force. 
Crabb has been charged with Arson, Burglary of a Structure, Grand Theft,
and two counts of Arson Resulting in the Injury to Another.  Crabb’s bond has been set at
$170,000.00. 

Shortly after Crabb’s arrest,
Cooper was arrested in Levy
County on identical
charges. Cooper is being held at the Levy
County Detention
Center.  No bond has been set for Cooper at this
time. 

LCSO would like to thank the Fire Marshal’s Office and the USMS for their help with the investigation.  We also wish a speedy recovery for the
injured LCDPS Firefighters.
