Car Burglary Crime Spree

July 27, 2018
More than 10 car burglaries and one stolen vehicle report were
made to the Levy County Sheriff’s Office in the last 24 hours. All reports came
from the same general neighborhood area located north of Williston. The thieves
targeted unlocked vehicles and took all types valuables including purses, cash,
electronics and firearms. The vehicle that was stolen had the keys left in it
by the owner and was later located abandoned in Gainesville. 
These reports follow a rash of vehicle burglaries in Chiefland
last week, near and around the Chiefland Golf and Country Club.
All residents are cautioned to lock your vehicles and remove
or hide valuables. The Sheriff’s Office Criminal Investigations Division is
working on several leads but believe there may be additional information available.
If you have information which could aid us in solving these or other vehicle burglaries,
please contact the Sheriff’s Office at 352-486-5111 and request to speak to
Sergeant Mike Narayan at extension 267.
