On Monday July 3, 2017 the owner of Frogs BBQ Pad located on US Hwy Alt 27 just outside of Williston discovered someone had broken into his business. The owner reported the thief took a laptop computer and cash.
The LCSO Criminal Investigations Division (CID) capitalized on citizen tips to identify Mitchell F. Cooper (8-4-77) as the only suspect in this reported crime. Investigators located and arrested Cooper yesterday and additionally were able to recover the owner’s stolen laptop. Investigators verified the computer belonged to the victim by history located on the computer’s web browser and have returned it.
Cooper was booked into the Levy County Detention Facility and was charged with burglary and grand theft. His bond has been set at $15,000.00.
