The Levy County Sheriff’s Office executed an arrest warrant on a subject in the area of North South Estates which is located between Bronson and Williston. The subject initially barricaded himself inside the home and would not surrender. LCSO Deputies secured the area and in the process had to re-route a Levy County School bus. The children were never in danger, but in the abundance of caution deputies would not allow the bus driver to pass the scene. The situation has since been resolved and the subject is in custody.
Levy County School District members were told the bus had to be re-routed. Before they were able to contact parents to arrange an alternate pick up location the subject surrendered. All children who would have been dropped off earlier at their normal drop-off location are currently being taken to their respective, normal drop-off locations.
We will update the details of the subjects arrest shortly.
