On September 11, 2015 a Chiefland
resident reported his shed located on his property had been broken into within
the last 18 hours. LCSO deputies and investigators responded to the
complainant’s home and discovered guns, ammunition and tools had been taken.
The burglars cut locks and forced the door off the tracks to gain entry. The
initial investigation did not produce any leads or potential suspects.
A second burglary was reported
from the same location on September 18th. Tools, ammunition and other
miscellaneous items were stolen. Investigators developed leads with the
assistance of observant community members which aided in the identification of
the suspects.
Investigators were able to catch
up to the primary suspect; Mack Anthony Miller W/M (8-20-74) on September 21st
at a home located 8291 NW 130th
Street in Chiefland. Investigators subsequently
identified and arrested the second suspect of these burglaries, Danny Lee Kincaid
W/M (8-24-86).  Both men were charged
with armed burglary and grand theft. As this investigation continued at this
address, property was found and identified as belonging to the victim of both the
burglaries.
But, investigators didn’t stop
there. Evidence was found near this home indicating methamphetamines were being
manufactured at the location.  LCSO Drug
Task Force investigators identified Lester Hamilton Piersall W/M (5-19-61), a
registered sex offender and also resident of this home as the methamphetamine
“cook.”  He was taken into custody for manufacture
of methamphetamine with the intent to distribute and transported to the LCSO
Detention Facility.
And, investigators still weren’t
done. Keith Martin Davis W/M (8-21-80) then drove to the home and became
verbally combative with investigators who were still actively working this
crime scene.  Davis’ actions drew more attention to him
than he probably wanted.  Investigators
discovered Davis
drove there after his driver’s license had been permanently revoked for failure
to pay traffic fines.  He too was
arrested and taken to the Levy County Detention Facility.  Kerry Bush W/F (9-16-80), a passenger in the
vehicle, was found to have a warrant for her arrest.  She was taken into custody and booked into the
Levy County Detention Facility.
