Felon Re-offender Arrested

March 27, 2017

Levy County Sheriff’s Office Investigators solved two recent burglary and theft cases on March 20th with the arrest of Stephen Scott Albert Wyer (8-22-79) of Fanning Springs. Wyer was released from prison approximately one year ago after he was convicted for the production of methamphetamines and grand theft in Alachua County. Since his release, he has stolen a washer and dryer from a home in Fanning Springs earlier this month and pawned them at a local pawn shop. Wyer also stole a .357 from his girlfriend’s father’s home too. Wyer’s girlfriend confronted him, so he returned the gun.

Wyer has been arrested and charged with burglary, grand theft, dealing in stolen property, grand theft of a firearm and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. He was booked into the Levy County Detention Facility and his bond has been set at $225,000.00.
