Chiefland Man Arrested For Witness Tampering

            MEDIA RELEASE


Date:                January 20, 2011

Time:                9:30 AM


On January 19, 2011 the Levy County Sheriff's Office arrested Greg Roland for tampering with a witness.  The Drug Task Force Agents received information that Roland was threatening a confidential source and had placed a $ 5,000 bounty on the source. 


During the investigation Roland walked up to the window of the confidential source's car and stated that he had a $ 5,000 bounty on the person.  The source had Agent Burt Miller on the phone and Miller over heard this threat.  Roland was arrested in the South Chiefland area last night for tampering with a witness and the judge issued a $ 500,000 bond.


Agents felt this was a credible threat since Roland has a violent criminal past.  Roland was arrested in the Miami area for murder.
