Female Arrested for Obstructing Deputies

May 24, 2017

Deputies obtained information through a confidential tip which led to the arrest of fugitive William Justin Ford. Ford escaped custody on March 28, 2017 and had been on the run for 51 days. Investigators learned Ford was at a home owned by Tiffany Nicole Davis (8-3-87). Deputies arrived, announced their presence and gave Davis specific orders to exit the home. Davis refused and stalled the deputies’ attempt to enter the home which allowed Ford a second chance at escape.

Ford was captured after running a short distance from the home. Davis was also given a ride to the Levy County Detention Facility for her part in his last bid for freedom. Davis was found to have a knive/brass knuckles combination weapon concealed in her waist band. She was booked in for resisting officers without violence and possession of a concealed weapon. Her bond has been set at $35,000.00.

Escapee Arrested


May 18, 2017
On March 28th the LCSO reported that William Justin Ford 12-21-90 was able to slip free from his handcuffs and escape from a LCSO patrol car. Mr. Ford’s freedom was short lived, as he was captured late this afternoon at a residence off of CR 337. Investigators were tipped to Fords location and surrounded the home. Ford did the only thing he knew to do and tried to run again, however deputies had all of his escape routes blocked. Ford was taken into custody.

Mr. Ford will have his first appearance tomorrow morning in the Levy County Court. He faces multiple felony charges from his first escape and will be charged with an additional count of resisting arrest for his refusal to comply and surrender today. Investigators continue their investigation and expect additional charges will be filed on the individual(s) who assisted Ford as he evaded capture for the last 51 days.

Mobile Meth Lab Located – Two Arrested


May 12, 2017

The Levy County Sheriff’s Office Drug Task Force Investigators and investigators with the Chiefland Police Department and LCSO Uniform Patrol Division conducted a traffic stop at 2:12 pm this afternoon in the area of 14621 NW Hwy 19 north of Chiefland. 

Investigators learned through an anonymous tip a vehicle potentially had an active methamphetamine laboratory inside. Investigators discovered the information was “spot on” and an active methamphetamine laboratory was in the vehicle. Investigators found a “trafficking” amount of liquid methamphetamine. 

The 2012 black SUV driven by Jessica L. Aguon (7-11-96) of Old Town, Fl was seized. Augon and passenger David N. Collins (1-17-66) from Cross City have been arrested and transported to the Levy County Detention Bureau. They have been charged with manufacturing methamphetamines and trafficking in methamphetamine.

Mobile methamphetamine laboratories pose a huge risk to both our public and first responders. These labs are extremely unstable and first responders have additional concerns when attempting to make these volatile chemicals safe especially on the side of the road.
