Club 212 “Out of Business”


In April of this year the Levy County Sheriff’s Office began receiving information that an illegal unlicensed night club had opened for operation off of NE 212 Court in Williston. Deputies began gathering information from citizen complaints and other sources. In August the LCSO joined forces with the Alcohol Beverage and Tobacco (ABT a State LEO Agency) and were able to confirm the majority of the information sources had supplied. It was determined that the owners/operators Eugene Donald and his wife Chrissi Donald were selling alcoholic beverages without a license and demanding a cover charge to enter into the structurally altered double wide trailer located in a usually quiet residential area. The FDLE, Alachua County Sheriff’s Office, Marion County Sheriff’s Office, Williston Police Department and Gainesville Police Department provided additional support to this investigation and were able to confirm information that illegal narcotic were being sold on the property.


On November 15 at approximately 11:30 pm the LCSO and ABT executed a search warrant on the 212 Club located at 3711 NE 212 Court Williston, Fl. Both Mr. and Mrs. Donald were arrested on various felony charges and booked into the Levy County Detention Facility. More charges are expected be filed at a later date. ABT seized 27 bottles of alcoholic beverages for evidence. Additionally, Antjuan Edwards was arrested for Possession of a Firearm by a Convicted Felon after Deputies encountered him inside during the execution of the warrant.


The Levy County Building and Zoning Department posted that the building was unsafe for occupancy and could not be reoccupied until the structural modifications needed to bring the building back into code compliance have been met.


Sheriff McCallum wanted to express his gratitude to all the agencies that assisted in this investigation and how much he appreciated the patience and assistance of the citizens who endured many sleepless nights. “We at the Sheriff’s Office hope that the citizens can now enjoy some peace and quite in their neighborhood”, Sheriff McCallum said.
