Drug Dealer Arrested

MEDIA RELEASE   Date:                March 30, 2012 Time:                5:31 PM   On March 29, 2012 Captain Scott Anderson arrested Kenyatta Daron Howard for possession of a controlled substance with intent to sell or deliver and possession of drug paraphernalia.   Last year the Levy County Sheriff’s Office Drug Task Force executed a drug search warrant in the Chiefland area. Several subjects were arrested in the search warrant, but Howard was allowed to leave the residence since he was not the focus of the investigation. Inside the Chiefland residence a large amount of cocaine was seized during the search warrant and a witness came forth and testified that Howard was weighing and packaging the cocaine the night the search warrant was executed.   After the above search warrant the Drug Task Force began an investigation on Howard. Agents purchased cocaine from him in Levy and Dixie Counties and obtained a warrant from the 2011 investigation.    Howard is known in Levy County and he is a mid-level drug dealer.  Prior to Howard’s arrest he was out on bail ($360,000) from local drug charges.  Howard was arrested on the Levy County warrant and has a $100,000 bond and the warrant in Dixie County he has no bond.   Major Evan Sullivan said “The Levy County Sheriff’s Office has a zero tolerance for drug dealers”.  “We will seek, find and arrest all drug dealers to make our streets in Levy County safer.”   Defendant:   Kenyatta Daron Howard 1414 Braden Powell Road Melrose, Fl. B/M, 10/11/1975   ###
