On July 26, 2016, Deputies from the Levy County Sheriff’s Office responded to the report of a suspicious item at the Fanning Springs State Park. The item had been discovered in the ladies restroom and was ultimately determined to be a video camera.
Personnel from the Florida Park Service, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission and the LCSO began a search of the Fanning Springs Park to locate the subject who was responsible for concealing the camera. Investigators Mike Wilkinson and Zeb Richburg located and questioned Ronald Alan Everett (4-27-66). After being confronted with the evidence against him, Everett confessed to placing the camera in the restroom underneath a sink. Everett made statements indicating that he may have placed additional cameras in other public restrooms.
Investigator Wilkinson arrested Everett and charged him with Video Voyeurism. Everett was also charged with Possession of less than 20 grams of Cannabis, Possession of Drug Paraphernalia and Giving False Identification to Law Enforcement. Everett is currently being housed at the Levy County Detention Center. His total bond has been set at $154,500.00. Everett was listed as a “Sexual Offender” on the FDLE website for a prior offense.
The investigation into whether Everett set up additional cameras in other locations is continuing. LCSO has published photographs of the recovered camera used in this incident to make our public aware of the design and location of where it was concealed. We urge everyone to be aware of their surroundings when using public restrooms. Please contact LCSO at 352-486-5111 or anonymously through Crime Stoppers of Levy County at 1-877-349-8477 if you find any suspicious devices.
