and thefts in the Chiefland area of Levy County.  The arrests began to come together on

business burglary in Gilchrist County.

charges.

for Resisting an Officer without Violence. 
After booking at the Levy County Detention Center, Loos was released on
his own recognizance.  

 Myers
is facing 12 different charges ranging from multiple Probation Violations and
burglary to marijuana possession.  She is
being held at the Levy County Detention Center under no bond.  Snellgrove was detained by the Florida
