Levy County Deputies Prepare to Deploy for Hurricane Relief

October 19, 2018
The Levy County Sheriff’s Office is preparing to send four deputies
to the Florida Panhandle for Hurricane Michael relief. The Florida Division of
Emergency Management in cooperation with the Florida Sheriff’s Association
(FSA) Task Force understand the need for assistance and recovery in the wake of
this disaster will last for months. The counties affected by this devastating
hurricane will likely need assistance from other law enforcement agencies for
some time to come as members from their agencies try to rebuild their own homes
and lives. 
The FSA has assumed the coordination of law enforcement relief
efforts and the scheduling of deputies responding to these affected communities
as top priority. Deputies responding to assist are being deployed from their
home Offices in seven day shifts and are coming from all agencies around the
state. Responding deputies are being assigned to a myriad of security duties
including patrolling residential and business areas guarding from looting and
other safety issues.
Sheriff McCallum is a proud member of the FSA and even more
proud of the volunteers from our agency. Dedicated members such as these who
unselfishly volunteered to respond to help our neighbors in their time of need
are the driving force behind the LCSO and our commitment to Florida citizens.
Sheriff McCallum asks that you continue to keep the communities in the
panhandle, his fellow Sheriff’s as well our members and all the other first
responders in your prayers. 
On Tuesday, October 23, 2018 a trailer filled with relief supplies
will be departing the LCSO in route to the panhandle. These supplies have been
donated by our Sheriff’s Office members, the Levy County Emergency Management, the
employees of the Levy County Constitutional Officers, Levy County employees and
Levy County Citizens. We thank everyone for their support as we continue to
restore some of the essentials of life to the devastated victims of Hurricane
Michael in the Panhandle.

Search Warrant Locates Stolen Guns and Drugs

Daryl Dallas

Devontre Dallas

October 17, 2018
The Levy County Sheriff’s Office Tactical Response Unit
(TRU) and Criminal Investigations Division (CID) executed a search warrant at
the home located at 21130 NE 40 Street in East Williston at 7 AM yesterday
morning. CID investigators developed information over a two week period that
led to this search warrant being issued. The object of this investigation was
to recover reported stolen firearms.
Investigators entered the home and immediately took Devontre
Dallas (6-4-2000) of Williston into custody. Devontre Dallas was a suspect in a
recently reported residential burglary where two guns were reported stolen. This
firearm along with cocaine and prescription narcotics was found inside the room
where Devontre was located by investigators.
Investigators began the search of the home and were
interrupted by Daryl Dallas (4-30-71) of Williston. Daryl Dallas drove through
the scene which had been cordoned off with yellow crime tape and confronted
investigators. Daryl Dallas refused to comply with all commands, resisted
investigators and was arrested. 
Resuming their search investigators located more than they
expected. A total of sixteen (16) firearms were found inside the home, some
were hidden and some were in laying in plain view. Four of these guns were
immediately identified as previously being reported stolen. Concerning to law
enforcement was the large number of high powered rifles capable of firing
through vehicles. And numerous handguns, one of which will fire through law
enforcement’s bullet proof vests, were also seized. Neither Daryl Dallas nor
Devontre Dallas is a registered hunter nor do they possess valid hunting
licenses. 
Suspected stolen property, for example flat screen TVs,
along with a previously reported stolen compound hunting bow and a trail camera
were recovered. And, investigators located illegal narcotics. Cocaine,
prescription pain pills and heroin was found. Among this were all of the
supplies and paraphernalia needed to manufacture, package and sell drugs.
This investigation will not end with these two arrests and
the recovery of these stolen items. Investigators anticipate information gained
during this phase of the investigation will result in more criminal charges
being filed and additional arrests being made. Investigators ask that anyone
who has information related to this case contact Investigator Scott Stancil or
Investigator Mike Wilkinson at 352-486-5111.
Daryl Dallas was charged with obstructing the execution of a
search warrant and resisting arrest. He is being held at the Levy County
Detention Facility and his bond has been set at $50,000.00.
Devontre Dallas was charged with burglary while armed; the
guns previously reported stolen during a residential burglary were found in his
room. He was also charged with two counts of grand theft of a firearm,
resisting arrest and obstructing the execution of a search warrant. He is being
held at the Levy County Detention Facility and his bond has been set at
$250,000.00. Additional charges are being filed today.
