Second Suspect Arrested in Home Invasion

Second Suspect Arrested in Home Invasion   The second suspect from the home invasion robbery reported to Levy County Deputies on 5-10-12 has been arrested. Patrick Shawn McLaughlin 9-13-66 was tracked down last night in Columbia County. He was arrested for the outstanding warrant issued by a Levy County Judge from the information submitted by LCSO Deputy Matt King.   McLaughlin thought he could pull stakes and move to avoid capture for his crimes. He was wrong. The long arm of the law and always-vigilant law officers of Florida are watching. Deputies from Columbia County and Levy County located McLaughlin as he was trying to enjoy a quiet dinner at the Barnyard Junction Restaurant located at 7629 Hwy 27 in Fort White.  Dinner interrupted and breakfast guaranteed courtesy of Columbia County Detention Facility.   ###
