Christmas Grinches Nabbed



The Levy County Sheriff’s Office has arrested Alura Weeks Myers, (DOB 11/16/95) and Luther Cole Snellgrove (DOB 9-20-99) on multiple charges related to burglaries and thefts in the Chiefland area of Levy County.  The arrests began to come together on Christmas Eve when LCSO deputies responded to a reported burglary in progress at a residence north of Chiefland.  Snellgrove was apprehended and taken into custody by the Chiefland Police Department after fleeing the residence. 

 During the follow up investigation, LCSO Investigator C.J. Perryman was able to determine that both Snellgrove and Myers were responsible for the Christmas Eve residential burglary, an earlier burglary at Carter’s Store as well as a business burglary in Gilchrist County.  Myers is currently on probation for previous burglary and theft charges. 

Myers was located by Deputies on December 27th in the Bronson area and taken into custody.  Myers was in the company of  Edward Tyler Loos (DOB 8-15-95) at the time.  Loos was arrested for Resisting an Officer without Violence.  After booking at the Levy County Detention Center, Loos was released on his own recognizance.  

 Myers is facing 12 different charges ranging from multiple Probation Violations and burglary to marijuana possession.  She is being held at the Levy County Detention Center under no bond.  Snellgrove was detained by the Florida Department of Juvenile Justice.  Both individuals are suspects in at least one additional residential burglary in Levy County. 

 LCSO thanks the public and CPD for their assistance in solving these cases.  Citizens are reminded they can report suspicious activity to LCSO 24 hours a day at 352-486-5111.  They can also make anonymous reports to Crime Stoppers at 1-877-349-8477.
