Some may recall the press release issued by the Levy County Sheriff’s Office on Sept. 4, 2019 titled “The Courage of Children,” which detailed a child summoning all of her inner strength and telling a teacher about her sexual abuse that was occurring at home.
     Justice was served last Thursday (Jan. 15), when John E. Biles, 35, was sentenced in the Circuit Courts of Levy County to 25 years imprisonment in the Florida Department of Corrections. Upon his release in 2045, Biles will be designated as a sexual predator and will be ordered to wear an ankle monitor.
     Levy County Sheriff Bobby McCallum said, “This case is an example of the criminal justice system and school system coming together to stop the abuse of an innocent child. Thanks to a very brave victim having a special, trusting relationship with her teacher, this sexual predator will spend the next 25 years in prison. Teachers are faced with everyday challenges that go far beyond the basics of educating our children.
     “I applaud the detectives of my office, the (Florida) Department of Children and Family Services, our educators in Levy County and the (Eighth Judicial Circuit) State Attorney’s Office for justice being served," he added. "However, my highest admiration goes to this brave child victim. Justice has been served in this case, but my hope and prayers are for the healing and peace of this wonderful child and her family.”

     DIXIE COUNTY –
A man wanted by law enforcement agencies learned Saturday night (Jan. 18) that it is not only impolite to not dim bright lights for oncoming traffic, but it draws the attention of law enforcement officers, according to information in a press release from Dixie County Sheriff’s Office Maj. Scott Harden.
     On Saturday night, a DCSO deputy stopped a vehicle on Dixie County Road 351U when the driver failed to dim their headlights while approaching the deputy, Harden noted in a Jan. 21 press release.
     When the vehicle stopped, Harden said, the male driver jumped from the vehicle and ran on foot. The driver was identified as Frankie Lamar, 44 of Old Town.
      Lamar has outstanding warrants and charges in several jurisdictions, Harden said. Twice since New Year’s Eve, Lamar has evaded law enforcement officers in Dixie and Gilchrist counties, Harden said.
     As soon as Lamar was identified Saturday night, deputies called for the assistance of the Cross City Correctional Institution K-9 Team. The Cross City Correctional Institution K-9 Team and Taylor Correctional Institution K-9 Team responded to the scene off of CR 351U and quickly began to track Lamar, Harden said.
     Lamar initially ran north from the scene, Harden said, and his pet dog ran with him.
     Lamar soon turned back to the south and began using the woods and the cover of darkness to continue to flee, Harden said.
     The two K-9 teams tracked Lamar for a total of 10 miles as he continued to change directions during his flight. The K-9 teams and deputies eventually tracked Lamar to a detached garage at a residence on Northeast 484th Avenue, Harden said.
     When the deputies attempted entry, the garage was found to be locked from the inside, Harden said.
     As the deputies and K-9 teams were checking the perimeter of the garage, Lamar’s dog began to bark at the officers, Harden said Deputies then forced entry, Harden said, and that is where they found Lamar hiding with his dog -- inside the garage.
     Lamar was taken into custody and charged with the following offenses -- fleeing and eluding, tampering with physical evidence, burglary to a structure, driving on a suspended license, resisting an officer without violence, burglary of a structure, grand theft and an out-of-county warrant from Suwannee County, Harden said. Lamar is currently being held in the Dixie County Jail in lieu of a total of $93,000 bond, Harden said.

Suspected BB-gun

Updated Jan. 21, 2020 at 11:09 p.m.
     LEVY COUNTY --
Beginning on Dec. 21, deputies with the Levy County Sheriff's Office began receiving complaints from individuals who live west of the Town of Bronson, as they were reporting criminal mischief (vandalism).
     In each case when LCSO deputies responded, evidence was discovered that person(s) unknown shot vehicle windows, homes and outbuildings with what appeared to be a BB gun. Multiple windows on vehicles and homes were broken and exterior siding of several homes were dented.
     On Tuesday (Dec. 24), just minutes before Santa’s arrival in Bronson, Deputy M. Sinclair and Deputy K. Smith responded to a home located near Northeast 88th Lane and 113th Avenue. The caller told deputies he heard what he thought was a gunshot outside his home, and when he went to investigate, he saw the back window of his truck had been shot out.
     He saw a white car speeding away from the scene. While speaking to the deputies, a white car sped back by the home and was immediately identified by the victim as the same car he saw moments earlier.
     Deputy Sinclair and Deputy Smith pursued the vehicle and stopped it. The driver, a 17-year-old and his passenger, also 17 years old, told the deputies they had BB guns under their front seats. The following roadside investigation discovered the two juveniles were responsible for the Christmas criminal mischief.
     The BMW getaway vehicle they were using, as well as their custom BB guns were seized and both suspects went to the Levy County Jail to spend the remainder of Christmas Eve.
     Both juveniles were charged with multiple felonies including firing a weapon into a dwelling/conveyance and criminal mischief. Additional charges are expected to be filed by the LCSO in the following days. Additionally, it appears Alachua County Sheriff’s Office was investigating reports of criminal mischief with the use of BB guns in the Archer area. The LCSO information has been shared with ACSO and more charges could be filed in Gainesville.  
     PUBLISHER'S NOTE (Updatd Jan. 21, 2020 at 11:09 p.m.): The names of the two suspects are STILL being withheld only because there is an active investigation. Since the two individuals who are younger than 18 years old are charged with felonies, their names are part of the public record that is eligible for release, and their names will be published here after the LCSO and the ACSO complete their investigations to a point where those two agencies do not believe release of the names will hamper an investigation. Please remember, all suspects are presumed innocent unless they are proved to be guilty through due process of law. Any person in the area who has lost property due to damage by BB shots, and who has not reported it yet, is asked to call the LCSO at 352-486-5111. (Some investigations by the LCSO and ACSO last for years and years, and since the relesae of these minors allegedly may interfere with those investigations, those names are still withheld.)

     DIXIE COUNTY –
A 59-year-old registered sexual predator was arrested Thursday (Jan. 16) for video voyeurism, according to information in a press release from Dixie County Sheriff’s Office Maj. Scott Harden.
     John Charles Buick, 59 of Old Town is suspected of preying upon a 10-year-old boy in bathroom, Maj. Harden said.
     On Wednesday night (Jan. 15), a grandfather and two of his grandchildren were in an Old Town business having dinner, Maj. Harden said.
     During this time the 10-year-old grandson went to the restroom, Harden said. Shortly after the boy went to the restroom, a male subject who was having dinner in the same establishment went into the restroom, Harden said.
     During this time, the 10-year-old boy looked down and saw that the person in the stall next to him had a cell phone with a camera pointed at him under the stall wall, Harden said.
     The 10-year-old exited the stall and saw the man that he recognized from sitting near them while eating, Harden said.
     Upon returning home, the sister told their parents what her 10-year-old brother had told her, Harden said.
     The family then returned to the business where they had a deputy meet them, Harden said. 
 When the deputy arrived, the parents and business staff viewed the businesses video footage, Harden said. During this time, Harden said, the staff told the deputy that the male subject had frequented the business before and that he was a registered “sex offender.”
     The deputy viewed the video footage while checking the Florida Department of Law Enforcement Sexual Offender/Predator list for Dixie County.
     It was during this time, Harden said, when Buick was identified as the man seated near the victim, and he was identified as the man entering the restroom behind the child with what appeared to be a cell phone in his hands.
     It was confirmed that Buick is a registered sexual predator, Harden said.
     On Thursday (Jan. 16), the deputy met with investigators and again interviewed witnesses and retrieved a copy of the store video, Harden said.
     They obtained a search warrant for the home of the suspect and deputies executed the search warrant on Buick’s home, Harden said.  Taken during the search warrant were electronic items and the clothing that the witnesses described him as wearing on the night of the incident, Harden said.
     After completing the search of the home and after completing the interview with Buick, the suspect was arrested and charged with video voyeurism and booked into the Dixie County Jail, Maj. Harden said.

Special agent in charge
shares comments about attack

     Publisher's Note: Following is a letter from Special Agent in Charge Rachel L. Rojas of the FBI Jacksonville Division in regard to the terrorist attack at the Naval Air Station in Pensacola last month. This was shared by the Jacksonville Office of the FBI.
Published Jan. 13, 2020 at 10:09 p.m.

To the residents of Pensacola and communities within the FBI Jacksonville Division,
    On Monday (Jan. 13), FBI Deputy Director David Bowdich and Attorney General William Barr shared new details about our search for answers surrounding the Dec. 6 shooting at the Naval Air Station Pensacola. They confirmed the attack was an act of terrorism motivated by jihadist ideology, and that no co-conspirators have been identified.
     They also announced that the investigation discovered derogatory information involving 21 other Saudi military students from across the country who were disenrolled from their training program by the Saudi government and, as of 7 p.m. CST (8 p.m. Eastern) today (Monday, Jan. 13), have departed the United States.
     Over the course of our investigation, FBI Jacksonville called on hundreds of investigative personnel and subject-matter experts to assist in this incredibly complex case, including more than 600 special agents, intelligence analysts, professional staff and linguists who deployed to Pensacola immediately following the attack. For more than a month, these teams worked around-the-clock to process leads, sift through digital content, and conduct over 500 interviews.
     This endeavor could not have been accomplished without the assistance of our local, state and federal law enforcement partners, and support from the United States Navy, Commanding Officer Tim Kinsella, and the entire NAS Pensacola family.
     I want to assure you that the FBI Jacksonville team remains fully committed to any ongoing push for answers. This work is at the core of the FBI mission, and we are further motivated by the memory of the American heroes that we lost that day.
     As our investigation moves into another chapter, FBI Jacksonville will continue to work closely with our law enforcement partners and the community to fight terrorism in North Florida and across the homeland, because we are much smarter and stronger together than we are standing alone.
We remain #UnitedForNASP,
Rachel L. Rojas

     David F. Michael, 66, of Dunnellon was driving a 2004 Chevrolet Silverado pickup truck at 2:05 p.m. on Jan. 8 in Marion County, according to a press release from Florida Highway Patrol Lt. Kevin M. Pace, based on information from crash investigator FHP Trooper J. Hilliard.

     DIXIE COUNTY --
A 32-year-old man from Old Town was arrested for aggravated child abuse and battery (domestic related) after deputies found a 7-year-old child with evidence to support an allegation of this abuse, according to information in a press release from Dixie County Sheriff’s Office Maj. Scott Harden.
     On Sunday afternoon (Jan. 5), the DCSO was called to respond to a possible child abuse complaint, Maj. Harden said.
     When the deputy arrived, she was told that the complainant allowed Mikell Phelps to discipline her 7-year-old child over earlier behavior, Harden said.
     She thought that Phelps would spank the child or give him “time-out,” according to what the mother told the deputy.
     Instead, the mother said, Phelps spanked the child with a paddle to the point that the child’s buttocks were bruised, Harden said.
     During the course of the discipline, Phelps struck the child on the left side of the face with enough force to knock the child down, Harden said the deputy learned. When the child was knocked to the ground, Harden said, he struck a chair with the right side of his face.
     During the interview with the child, Harden said, the deputy found the allegations to be consistent, including the discovery of bruising on the child’s buttocks and both sides of the child’s face, Harden said.
     Phelps, 32, of Old Town, was arrested for aggravated child abuse and battery (domestic related). Phelps is currently being held in the Dixie County Jail under a $13,000 bond, Harden said.

     SUMTER COUNTY – Window tint that was suspected to be illegal led to a routine traffic stop, according to information in a press release from Florida Highway Patrol Sgt. Steve Gaskins, and that led to the discovery of 21 kilos (about 26 and a half pounds) of cocaine on Tuesday afternoon (Jan. 7).
     On Jan. 7, at 12:36 p.m., FHP troopers on routine patrol saw a 2016 red-colored Dodge Journey going southbound on Interstate 75 near the 310 milepost in Sumter County with illegal window tint, Gaskins said.
     Troopers conducted a traffic stop and identified the driver as Elizabeth Espinoza, 27, of Ruskin, Gaskins said. As Espinoza became overtly nervous, troopers summoned an FHP K-9 which quickly alerted to the vehicle, Gaskins said.

     LEVY COUNTY –
While three people suspected of stabbing others in south Levy County went to jail on Dec. 28 and Dec. 30, a Chiefland man was charged with aggravated battery with a deadly weapon after he allegedly stabbed a man on Saturday in the City of Fanning Springs, according to information in a press release from Levy County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Lt. Scott Tummond.
     Gregory Heath Hingson, 39, of Chiefland was arrested and charged with aggravated battery with a deadly weapon, Lt. Tummond said.
     On Saturday (Jan. 4), LCSO deputies responded to Bubba’s Place Bar in Fanning Springs to a reported parking lot fight, Tummond said, where a person had been cut and stabbed.
     Deputies arrived to find a 25-year-old patron bleeding from a large laceration to the back of his neck and a stab wound to his upper arm, Lt. Tummond said. The victim was transported to a hospital for treatment of his injuries, Lt. Tummond said.
     Detectives responded and interviewed multiple witnesses, Lt. Tummond said.
     This led detectives to identify Hingson as the man suspected of being responsible for cutting and stabbing the victim, Tummond said. Detectives learned a third party approached Hingson and his friend who were in the parking lot and started an altercation, Tummond said.
     The victim jumped into the fight that was occurring between Hingson’s friend and the other man, Tummond said. Hingson was armed with a pocket knife and during the brawl, Tummond said, and that is how he cut and stabbed the victim. All parties, except the victim, fled the scene prior to law enforcement’s arrival, Tummond said.
     Detectives located and arrested Hingson within hours of the altercation. He was charged with aggravated battery with a deadly weapon, Tummond said.
     Hingson posted a $10,000 bond and was released from the Levy County Jail, pending trial, the following morning, Tummond said.
