Car Burglary Crime Spree

July 27, 2018

More than 10 car burglaries and one stolen vehicle report were made to the Levy County Sheriff’s Office in the last 24 hours. All reports came from the same general neighborhood area located north of Williston. The thieves targeted unlocked vehicles and took all types valuables including purses, cash, electronics and firearms. The vehicle that was stolen had the keys left in it by the owner and was later located abandoned in Gainesville. 

These reports follow a rash of vehicle burglaries in Chiefland last week, near and around the Chiefland Golf and Country Club.

All residents are cautioned to lock your vehicles and remove or hide valuables. The Sheriff’s Office Criminal Investigations Division is working on several leads but believe there may be additional information available. If you have information which could aid us in solving these or other vehicle burglaries, please contact the Sheriff’s Office at 352-486-5111 and request to speak to Sergeant Mike Narayan at extension 267.
