Deadly Crack on the Streets of Williston

July 3, 2014

Levy County Department of Public Safety and LCSO Deputies responded to East Williston shortly before midnight last night. Several reports were made concerning individuals suffering from violent seizures, high blood pressure and foaming at the mouth after falling unconscious. Five people were transported to nearby medical facilities after falling ill. Two additional people refused medical aid and two more were not located at the scene when deputies/EMS arrived.

Investigators determined a subject known by the street name “Minute” had been selling crack cocaine laced with an unknown substance. The subjects transported, two black males in their 50’s, one white male in his 30’s, a male in his 60’s and one black female in her 30’s are still being monitored by emergency staff. The substance has not been identified.

LCSO and Levy County Department Public Safety are urging everyone to exercise extreme caution. Not only could you be arrested and jailed for possession of crack cocaine, citizens are taking huge life safety risks by smoking these unknown illegal substances.
