Family Disturbance Ends in Arrest

May 14, 2018

On May 5, 2018 Levy County Deputies responded to a family disturbance at a home in Inglis. Deputies spoke to family members who described Kenneth A. Everts (12-2-75) as brandishing a firearm and making non-specific threats. Family members said Everts took several firearms and placed them inside of his truck then fled the home prior to the deputy’s arrival.

Everts returned to the home shortly after deputies began their investigation and was taken into custody. Deputies discovered a bullet proof vest inside his vehicle. Everts was questioned about the firearms family members said he had, and he denied ever possessing a gun. He told deputies he was a convicted felon and was prohibited from owning one.

These statements did not deter deputies, and eventually Everts confessed to dropping several guns off at a friend’s home before returning to his home. Everts told deputies how to find the friend’s home and deputies recovered two AK 47’s, a shotgun, and two pistols. In addition to these guns, Everts also dropped off ammunition, large knives, smoke grenades, brass knuckles, holsters and a mask at the residence.

Everts was arrested for possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and transported to the Levy County Detention Facility. He is currently being held on a $200,000.00 bond.
