The LCSO Criminal Investigations Division arrested Daniel Delaney 6-15-72 of Chiefland on October 18, 2016 for Dealing in Stolen Property and Possession of a Weapon by a Convicted Felon. Delaney was developed as a suspect after investigators arrested Gary Vanwinkle and Samantha Corbin. Investigators were able to determine Corbin met with Delaney and sold him several guns recently stolen from an elderly victim in Levy County and a gun stolen from Dixie County.
Investigators interviewed Delaney on October 18, 2016 at his home in Chiefland. Delaney denied meeting with or purchasing guns from Corbin. Unknown to Delaney, the entire transaction was recorded on business surveillance cameras.
Delaney was arrested and booked into the Levy County Detention Facility and is being held pending his first appearance before Judge Browning tomorrow morning.
Investigators believe Delaney has been involved in selling stolen merchandise to unsuspecting citizens in Alachua County, Gilchrist County, Dixie County, Levy County and Daytona Beach. Anyone who has purchased anything from Daniel Delaney is asked to contact Investigator Scott Stancil at 352-486-5111 and allow law enforcement to inspect your purchase. It would be very unfortunate for a citizen thinking they were able to buy something for a “good deal” to wind up being the subject of a criminal investigation, when they can easily have it verified through us.
