Two Arrest in Buy Bust


Date:                March 9, 2012

Time:                10:15 AM


On March 7, 2012 the Levy County Sheriff's Office Drug Task Force conducted an undercover drug operation in the Chiefland area.  During the reverse deal Tracy Smith and Kelly Colson were arrested on multiple charges.


Case Agent Burt Miller set up a drug reverse deal with the above defendants and met with them at a local business.  Prior to the drug deal Smith contacted authorities by telephone to set the drug deal, location and price of the pills.  Any person that utilizes telecommunication to set up any drug deals commits a third degree felony and according to Major Evan Sullivan the Sheriff's Office has a zero tolerance for this type of behavior.


Upon arriving at the predetermined location Smith & Colson met with the source on the side of the business and purchased oxycodone pills.  During the buy bust Smith was ordered to the ground and refused to comply with a lawful order.  Smith was physical restrained and placed into custody.  During a search, Smith had a needle and a spoon in his pocket. Smith was arrested for purchasing a controlled substance, possession of a controlled substance, unlawful use of telecommunication, possession of drug paraphernalia and resisting arrest without violence.


Colson had her one year old child in her truck during the drug deal. Colson was arrested for child neglect and possession of drug paraphernalia.  Colson had three syringes and one spoon that contained a white substance residue.  The Department of Children and Families were notified and took custody of the child.
