On May 8, 2013 Timothy L. Cobb - 40, a Bronson native, accepted a court negotiated plea for 5 years in the Florida Department of Corrections for his charges. He had been arrested on in February of this year by Levy County Sheriff's Office Cpl. Mike Bell for a string of burglaries and thefts in Bronson. This is the 4th time Cobb has been sentenced to prison for his crimes, including one stint in Federal Prison in 1998.
Cpl. Bell began investigating Cobb in December of 2012 when reports of burglaries and thefts were received from Bronson businesses. Cobb, who has a long history with the Sheriff's Office, had recently been released from prison. Cobb is known to Law Enforcement to have a drug dependency problem. Cpl. Bell ultimately built his case and arrested Cobb for a myriad of crimes from 3 of these reported cases.
When Levy County Sheriff's Office identifies repeat offenders as new suspects, WE make these cases our priority. Repeat offenders pose a greater threat to the safety OUR citizens.
