On November 3rd Levy County Investigators
received an anonymous tip of a burglary that occurred at a vacant home in
Morriston, Fl. The tipster told investigators at least four people broke into
the home and took valuables and firearms. The following investigation verified
that three adults and one juvenile entered a home located at 21530 SE 67th
Place in Morriston several times and took tools, jewelry, a TV and guns.
Investigators located and arrested Hunter Gaston (3-3-94),
Wesley Rizer (9-19-89) and Annie Harknett (10-6-97) on November 4th for
burglary of a structure and grand theft of a firearm. Charges are still pending
on the juvenile involved in this incident and the investigation is continuing.
Investigators recovered two guns, a .22 caliber rifle and a .38 special
handgun, as well as tools, the TV and jewelry at an estimated value of
approximately $1,000.00.
The arrestees are being held at the Levy County Detention
Facility. Hunter Gaston’s bond has been set at $225,000.00. Wesley Rizer’s bond
has been set at $50,000.00 and Annie Harknett’s bond has been set at
$20,000.00.
The LCSO and the home owner with our deepest gratitude say “Thank
You” to the tipster in this case. Had it not been for your watchful eye and the
civic duty you performed for your neighbors, this crime may have gone
undetected for some time.
