Kyle Omar Silcox 2-11-81 was arrested without incident due to the combined efforts of the Levy County Sheriff’s Office, the Citrus County Sheriff’s Office and the United States Marshals Florida Regional Fugitive Task Force on August 26, 2016 at an abandoned home in Citrus County. Silcox was wanted by Levy County for Tampering with a Victim/Witness and Alachua County for Grand Theft Auto. During his apprehension, Citrus County Sheriff Deputies discovered a mobile Methamphetamine lab, known as a “one pot cook”, in the trunk of the vehicle; and freshly produced meth in the interior of the car.
Levy County Sheriff’s Office previously received a battery complaint on August 8, 2016 and charges were filed with the 8th Judicial Circuit State Attorney’s Office. On August 19, 2016 Investigators with LCSO received a second complaint from the victim of the battery. The victim reported Silcox had been harassing her, threatening to kill her, and threatening to kill her family members. Silcox also told the victim he would force law enforcement to kill him and would not surrender.
Silcox was arrested by the Citrus County Sheriff’s Office for manufacture and possession of Methamphetamine and is being held on a $13,000 bond.
Silcox will ultimately be transported to Levy and Alachua Counties to appear on the charges in these jurisdictions.
