Wanted: George "Bo" Wilkinson


Date: April 14, 2009
Time: 11:15 AM

Chiefland, Florida- The Levy County Sheriff’s Office has active warrants on George Freeman Wilkinson for scheme to defraud/organized fraud. Wilkinson also goes by nickname “Bo” and may possibly be driving a dark red Chevrolet truck with “Wilkinson Tree Service” on the doors, dark in color Chevrolet Tahoe or a maroon Nissan truck.

Wilkinson has contacted numerous Levy County citizens and tells them that he is doing work in the area and he can give them an excellent deal. Wilkinson will obtain half the payment for services and never perform the work. This should be raising a red flag to any citizens that are told they need payment before the services are rendered. Wilkinson has defrauded over a dozen victims in Levy County and more charges are expected to follow.

Wilkinson has a Gilchrist County warrant for expired tag more than six months and also a Taylor County warrant for passing a worthless check. Wilkinson is a four time convicted felon with a past history being convicted on possession of cocaine and aggravated battery.

It is unknown where Wilkinson is living but we feel that he is still in the area defrauding other victims. A reward is being offered and you can remain anonymous by calling Crime Stoppers at 1-877-349-8477 or you can contact Investigator Mike Bell at 352-486-5111 extension 266.
