Civil Court Order Enforcement Results in Drug Arrests




February 3, 2016

Levy County Sheriff’s Office deputies arrested two individuals after deputies were called to 4453 NE 77th Avenue in Bronson on February 2, 2016.  Deputy Chase Gregory went to the location in response to a citizen’s request to enforce a Writ of Possession.  Deputy Gregory notified Travis James Holmes (11-7-91) that he had to leave the mobile home because of the writ.  After the notification, both Holmes and Leah Hill Wilkerson (3-23-70) returned to the mobile home and removed items that included controlled substances and drug paraphernalia.  Holmes was wearing a knife on his belt when he entered the mobile home and indicated to a witness that he would use the knife to obtain the items.  

Deputy Gregory was able to apprehend Wilkerson on scene.  Holmes evaded Gregory but was later detained by Lt. Duane Dykstra.  Deputies found a significant amount of drug paraphernalia in the area including a large number of used syringes and spoons that had been used to prepare narcotics for injection. 

Wilkerson was charged with Possession of Cocaine and Drug Paraphernalia.  She is being held on a $31,000.00 bond.  Holmes was charged with Possession of a Controlled Substance without a Prescription and Armed Trespassing.  Holmes is being held on a $40,000.00 bond.  Both subjects are being held at the Levy County Detention Center.
