Juveniles Arrested for Stolen Guns, Drugs
July 31, 2018
On Friday July 27, 2018 the Levy County Sheriff’s Office
Criminal Investigations Division arrested three Williston teens. Investigators
responded to an abandoned home in Williston in reference to a trespassing
compliant. Investigators are familiar with this home having recovered six
stolen firearms from the same residence in June. Investigators know this house
to be abandoned and are aware local criminals have used the home to hang out,
hide stolen property in and sell drugs.
Investigators found three teens in the home when they
arrived. Investigators entered the home after looking through a window and saw
a teen run into another room. Investigators located two loaded handguns in the
kitchen. Both weapons were loaded and one had been reported stolen to the
Williston Police Department after a recent vehicle burglary. Two females, both
14, were found in the living room and arrested for trespassing in a structure. The
third teen, identified as the person seen running, Larron Jadawn Ross
(9-17-2000) was arrested for burglary while armed, possession of a weapon by a
person under 18 and possession of cocaine with the intent to distribute within
1000 feet of a place of worship. Investigators located crack cocaine packaged
for street sales in a “fanny pack” identified as belonging to Ross. Ross’s
phone was found next to the guns in the kitchen and he also admitted to picking
them up and “checking them out.”
The female juveniles were processed and released to parents.
Ross was booked in and released to the Department of Juvenile Justice.
