On December 12, 2011 the Levy County Sheriff's Office Drug Task Force comprised of Agents with the Chiefland Police Department and the Sheriff's Office arrested Torry F.

Upon the illegal drug transaction "Big White" drove away in his 2001 Chevrolet with Florida tag 232-LNV westbound on County Road 345 and was stopped by Agents at NW 55 Ave.  Agents immediately arrested "Big White" and recovered the Sheriff's buy money.  "Big White" was arrested for trafficking in Lortab and the total weight was 21.5 grams.  Per Florida State Statues anything over 4.0 grams is considered to be a trafficking amount of pills.  "Big White was additionally charged on two Levy County warrants for trafficking in oxycodone during two separate undercover drug buys that occurred prior to this drug deal.


"Big White" is known by the Levy County Sheriff's Office.  In 1999 "Big White" was arrested for five separate cocaine charges and in 2000 he was arrested on five counts of cocaine charges. Those charges were dropped.
