On Friday July 21, 2017 the Levy County Sheriff’s Office Drug Task Force (DTF) and Criminal Investigations Division (CID) executed a search warrant at 439 North Court Street in Bronson. The LCSO received multiple calls from concerned citizens that activity at the home owned by Frank Barnes (4-23-48) dramatically increased. Callers reported seeing what they believed was drug activity at the otherwise quiet household.
DTF and CID investigators found Barnes inside the home alone. The search of the home revealed cocaine and drug paraphernalia. Multiple people were coming to this home and buying and/or using narcotics based upon evidence gathered by DTF investigators which lead up to the search warrant.
Barnes was arrested and has been booked into the Levy County Detention Facility. His bond has been set at $50,000.00.
This investigation is still on-going and additional arrests could be made in the future.
