Operation “Bronson Ink”

On May 9, 2013 the Levy County Sheriff’s Office Drug Task Force (DTF) began investigating street level drug sales in the Bronson area. Dubbed “Bronson Ink”, investigators utilized confidential informants to make 68 cases resulting in 148 charges from 30 defendants.  Informants purchased a myriad of narcotics including crack and powder cocaine, prescription medications including oxycodone, marijuana, Molly and one firearm. The DTF concluded their investigation on August 21, 2013 and with a “slow and steady” pace began arresting the suspects, picking them off one by one. To date, 21 suspects have been taken into custody, 19 of which are pictured above. The remaining few have pending warrants for their arrest.
 Sheriff McCallum said he could not be more proud of his men and women who undertake the task of enforcing drug laws and seek these violators who sell illegal narcotics. These Deputies work relentlessly, enduring late nights and long hours to bring those who violate our drug laws to justice.
