Levy SO Arrests Suspect Preying on Juvenile Females

 

 
 

July 22, 2016

On July 20, 2016, Investigators
from the Levy County Sheriff’s Office arrested Dillon Arnold Bird (2-2-1992) for
multiple sex offenses.  Bird resided in
the Williston area of the county. 

Several days earlier, Sgt. Mike
Narayan and Investigator Mike Wilkinson met with a concerned parent of a 17
year old female high school student.  The
parent discovered evidence that the daughter had been involved in a sexual
relationship with Bird.  LCSO immediately
began investigating the report and were quickly able to develop probable cause
that Bird had committed at least three sex crimes against the victim in Levy
County. 

Unfortunately, LCSO’s investigation
also uncovered evidence indicating that Bird had committed multiple sex crimes
against another Levy County teenage victim. 
Those incidents remain under investigation.      

The LCSO investigation revealed
that Bird used the social media application “Snap Chat” to make initial contact
with his prospective victims.  Bird
convinced the juvenile victims to meet him and then ultimately convinced them
to engage in sex acts with him.  LCSO
investigators believe there are other potential victims who have not reported
the crimes.  Sheriff McCallum stated
“this case is particularly disturbing due to the apparent sophistication of the
offender and his ability to victimize teenagers who would not normally be
considered at risk.  We want to encourage
any other potential victims to come forward and report any incidents involving
this suspect.” 

Bird has been booked into the
Levy County Detention Center on three counts of Unlawful Sexual Activity with a
Minor.  His total bond has been set at
$750,000.00.
