Bronson Burglary Ring Uncovered

 

The
Levy County Sheriff’s Office has made one arrest and has identified two other
individuals who are believed to be responsible for more than 20 separate
burglaries in the Bronson area.  The
crimes stretch over a period of 14 months. 
The locations that had been targeted included various businesses as well
as schools in the Town of Bronson. 

The
investigation gained momentum when Deputies from our Patrol Division intensified
patrols around the buildings that were being burglarized.  On December 19th, Deputies Jeremy
Dean and Justin Van Duren completed a Field Interview Report on Jordan Ray Price
(11-13-94).  LCSO Investigators Scott
Stancil and Noel Ramirez were able to take the information from the report and
positively identify Price as one of the individuals who had broken into Bronson Middle High School
on multiple occasions.  Eventually they were
able to identify two additional suspects in some of the crimes. 

On
December 24, LCSO Deputies arrested Jordan Price on one count of Burglary,
Criminal Mischief and Trespassing on the Bronson Middle / High School
Grounds.  His bond has been set at
$16,500.00 and he remains incarcerated at the Levy County
Detention Center. 

Investigators
continue to build the cases against the known suspects.  They anticipate filing more than 50 criminal
charges in the combined cases. 

LCSO
also requests the public’s assistance in locating Gatlin Michael Clark  (12-6-91). 
Clark is a person of interest in
several cases and is currently wanted by the Lake County Sheriff’s Office for a
Violation of Probation.   

LCSO
thanks the public for their assistance in solving these cases.  Citizens are reminded they can report
suspicious activity to LCSO 24 hours a day at 352-486-5111.  They can also make anonymous reports to Crime
Stoppers at 1-877-349-8477.
