Car Burglars Strike Again


July 30, 2018

Levy County Sheriff’s Office deputies are currently responding to multiple reports of car burglaries and vehicle thefts that occurred last night in both the Williston Golf and Country Club area and in the Town of Bronson. Investigators believe all of these crimes are related. 

A 2000 black Ford F-150 long wheel base with a diamond plate tool box and attached Florida tag Y33 QLV was reported stolen Saturday from the Williston area. Our citizens are asked to be on the lookout (BOLO) for this vehicle. This truck may currently be in the Williston or Gainesville area. The owner describes it as being in good shape. The truck has a bug deflector attached to the hood and a UF parking sticker in the front windshield. No other modifications have been made to the truck. This vehicle was seen by a witness in the area of a recently reported vehicle burglary at approximately 6 a.m. this morning. This vehicle has not been located and may still be in possession of the person(s) who stole it. 

A silver Nissan truck was also reported stolen from the Bronson area and has been located in Williston. A second vehicle was also located in the same location. The owner of this vehicle has confirmed it was stolen, but had not discovered it was missing until our investigators called. 

Anyone who has information related to these thefts and vehicle burglaries is asked to contact the Sheriff’s Office at 352-486-5111. If you see the missing Ford truck, do NOT approach the vehicle and contact 911 immediately. If you wish to remain anonymous please contact Crime Stoppers at 1-877-349-8477. You may be eligible for a cash reward.
