The Levy County Sheriff’s Office Criminal Investigations Division executed a search warrant on May 19, 2016 at 6653 NW 138 Place Chiefland, Fl. This home belongs to Jeffrey and Kelly Koschatzky who were not home at the time the warrant was executed. The warrant was based upon information gathered from an investigation which determined the Koschatzky’s were manufacturing methamphetamine's in the home while their children were present.
Evidence gathered by LCSO investigators and Crime Scene Technicians resulted in arrest warrants being issued for both Jeffrey Koschatzky (5-4-79) and Kelly Koschatzky (4-28-78) for manufacturing methamphetamine, possession of methamphetamine, child neglect and other charges. Kelly Koschatzky was arrested by Levy County Deputy Gulledge on May 25, 2016 and is being held at the Levy County Detention Facility on a $235,000 bond.
Jeffrey Koschatzky was located in Dixie County and arrested on local burglary charges in addition to the Levy County warrant.
The Department of Children and Family Services have taken the Koschatzky children, ages 13, 12 and 10 into protective custody and placed them in a safe environment.
