Church Burglaries on the Rise Again

Over the last couple of weeks we have had some burglaries targeting Churches in the Williston, Bronson, Chiefland and Inglis areas. These Burglaries are part of a regional problem where houses of worship have been targeted in several jurisdictions. The Levy County Sheriffs Office is asking for your help. First we need for all Churches to revisit their security procedures to include the way they handle and store money to reduce the impact of a such a burglary at their church. Secondly we ask that you keep an eye out for suspicious activity in and around your church and report anything unusual as soon as possible to your local law enforcement agency.

If you have any information regarding any church burglaries in or around Levy County please call Lt. Scott Tummond at 352-486-5111 or you can remain anonymous by calling Crime Stoppers at 1-877-349-8477.
