On April 6, 2017 LCSO deputies working with United States Marshal’s deputies conducted a warrants sweep in the Inglis area of Levy County. Three subjects were arrested for outstanding warrants and taken to jail.
The operation began the day before as deputies gathered information on one particular wanted subject. Jason Eric Adams (10-25-94) was wanted for three outstanding warrants and was a current suspect in an ongoing robbery investigation. Deputies went to a home on Linda Street that Adams was known to frequent. Deputies did not find Adams there, but did find a stash of guns, drugs and used syringes. These items were seized, and the investigation based on this discovery is still on-going.
Adams was located a short time later at a home on Debra Street. He was hanging out with a female associate, Kristi Rose Hudak (4-21-85) who was also wanted for an outstanding Citrus County Violation of Probation warrant. Both Adams and Hudak were arrested and transported to the Levy county Detention Facility.
Later this same morning, deputies located and arrested Michael Samples (3-15-88). Samples gave deputies a false name and when his true identity was discovered, they found that he was wanted in Citrus County for a Failure to Appear warrant. Samples was additionally charged with providing false information to law enforcement and transported to the Levy County Detention Facility.
