Operation “Bronson Ink”
On May 9, 2013 the Levy County
Sheriff’s Office Drug Task Force (DTF) began investigating street level drug
sales in the Bronson area. Dubbed “Bronson Ink”, investigators utilized
confidential informants to make 68 cases resulting in 148 charges from 30
defendants.  Informants purchased a
myriad of narcotics including crack and powder cocaine, prescription
medications including oxycodone, marijuana, Molly and one firearm. The DTF
concluded their investigation on August 21, 2013 and with a “slow and steady”
pace began arresting the suspects, picking them off one by one. To date, 21
suspects have been taken into custody, 19 of which are pictured above. The
remaining few have pending warrants for their arrest.
 Sheriff McCallum said he could
not be more proud of his men and women who undertake the task of enforcing drug
laws and seek these violators who sell illegal narcotics. These Deputies work
relentlessly, enduring late nights and long hours to bring those who violate our
drug laws to justice.
