Chiefland Man Arrested for Fencing Stolen Property
October 18, 2016
The LCSO Criminal Investigations Division arrested Daniel
Delaney 6-15-72 of Chiefland on October 18, 2016 for Dealing in Stolen Property
and Possession of a Weapon by a Convicted Felon. Delaney was developed as a
suspect after investigators arrested Gary Vanwinkle and Samantha Corbin.
Investigators were able to determine Corbin met with Delaney and sold him
several guns recently stolen from an elderly victim in Levy County and a gun
stolen from Dixie County.
Investigators interviewed Delaney on October 18, 2016 at his
home in Chiefland. Delaney denied meeting with or purchasing guns from Corbin.
Unknown to Delaney, the entire transaction was recorded on business
surveillance cameras.
Delaney was arrested and booked into the Levy County
Detention Facility and is being held pending his first appearance before Judge
Browning tomorrow morning.
Investigators believe Delaney has been involved in selling
stolen merchandise to unsuspecting citizens in Alachua County, Gilchrist
County, Dixie County, Levy County and Daytona Beach. Anyone who has purchased
anything from Daniel Delaney is asked to contact Investigator Scott Stancil at
352-486-5111 and allow law enforcement to inspect your purchase. It would be
very unfortunate for a citizen thinking they were able to buy something for a
“good deal” to wind up being the subject of a criminal investigation, when they
can easily have it verified through us.
