Bronson Armed Robbery

March 13, 2015

On March 12, 2015 at approximately 9:30 PM, Deputies from the Levy County Sheriff’s Office responded to a reported armed robbery near the Post Office in the Town of Bronson.  The elderly white male victim reported that he stopped his vehicle near the outside mail box while making a phone call.  An unknown black male subject entered the Victim’s vehicle on the passenger side and immediately put a knife to the Victim’s throat. 

The robber demanded that the Victim turn over his money and threatened to kill the Victim if he did not cooperate.  The subject stole several hundred dollars in U.S. Currency from the Victim.  The robber then demanded that the Victim drive him away from the crime scene.  The Victim complied and after driving a short distance, the robber exited the vehicle with the Victim’s cash and vehicle keys. 

Deputies responded and attempted to locate the suspect. Corporal Kevin Kinik deployed his K-9 “Zombie” and was able to track the suspect approximately one mile before losing the trail near Main Street and State Road 24.
