Sentencings from the Bench
A 26-year-old Cross City woman will be spending the next month-and-half in jail on charges of violating her probation by getting involved in illegal drug activity.
Kimberly Delores Downing was sentenced to 90 days in the Levy County Detention Center, and was given credit by Circuit Judge William Davis for 65 days served in jail.
She violated her probation on Aug. 4, 2014 in Columbia County. The Columbia County Multi-Jurisdictional Task Force was conducting undercover surveillance at a Walgreens store looking for people who were buying materials necessary to manufacture methamphetamine.
The undercover operatives saw a truck parked at the store with occupants who appeared to be looking around as though they were on watch. Downing was a passenger in the truck.
The truck was stopped on the Branford highway for having a defective brake light. Each of the occupants admitted purchasing pseudoephedrine for an unidentified man out of Cross City. A check of the national data base used to track purchases of pseudoephedrine showed Downing had made 24 purchases in four blocks of time. Downing was carrying .5 grams of methamphetamine when arrested.
She first came to the attention of Chiefland police on May 3, 2014 when prevention loss officers at the Wal-Mart Supercenter saw her remove cosmetic products from her pockets and began smashing them on the floor.The cosmetics belonged to the store and were ruined.
Downing had to be restrained by city police after they stopped her in the store. They found an eyeglass case in her possession containing two straws, a spoon, needle and syringe with a half melted pill stuck to the spoon.She told officers the pill was Saboxin, a prescription medication that hadn’t been prescribed to her. She said she had a drug problem. She told officers she would melt pills and shoot the liquid into her veins.
Arin McNulty, 33, Cedar Key, was sentenced to 120 days in the Levy County Detention Center on a probation violation charge. He was given 56 days credit for time served in jail.
Court records said McNulty violated his probation when he tested positive for marijuana, cocaine, opiates and buprenorphine during a required drug test at Meridian Behavioral Center.
McNulty’s original arrest stemmed from a call to Levy County sheriff’s dispatch on Oct. 4, 2014 from a woman who was worried about two men in a vehicle who looked like they might burglarize a vacant home in her neighborhood that had been the target of a burglary earlier.
When deputies arrived they saw a woman standing on the roadside calling from a cell phone. She pointed to a car coming their way. Sheriff’s deputies could see the men weren’t wearing seatbelts. The vehicle was stopped. The driver said they were looking for berries.
When deputies asked to see the driver’s license, they asked McNulty where to find it. He pointed to a visor on the driver’s side that held a wallet. When deputies opened the wallet, they found a rocklike substance that tested positive for methamphetamine. The driver, Joshua John, said it wasn’t his wallet.
Beverly Elaine Thomas, 38, Chiefland, was sentenced to 270 days in the Levy County Detention Center for violating her probation by failing to complete an anger management program at Meridian Behavioral Heathcare. She was given credit for 224 days served in jail.
The original charged stemmed from an incident in Chiefland on Sept. 21, 2014 when she used a metal bat to strike a female victim on the back of the head during an argument over an old boyfriend. The victim ran into her home, but Thomas began breaking windows and then proceeded to break out the windshield of the victim’s vehicle.
In the anger management course, court records said Thomas was verbally aggressive with staff on two occasions and was disruptive with staff in the waiting area.
A 20-year-old Levy County man with an Archer address was sentenced to 18 months in state prison for committing two burglaries.
Kyle Bryan Bell was given credit for 266 days served in jail and was ordered to serve 24 months of community control when he completes his prison sentence followed by 30 months of probation.
Bell admitted driving an accomplice to a home on Oct. 23, 2014 and waiting outside until the second man signaled that the burglary was complete. Eight guns were taken along with a game system and a phone.
The second burglary involved the theft of tattooing guns, a bow and a tablet computer from a different home.
Bell contacted an undercover informant working for the Levy County sheriff’s office about selling the bow. The undercover informant purchased the bow with $40 using funds set aside for undercover operations.
What is Crime Stoppers?
Crime Stoppers is a county wide program designed to help law enforcement solve crimes. This is done by providing the public with a means to phone in tips anonymously and receive rewards for information that leads to arrests.
How does Crime Stoppers work?
It's simple. A caller dials 1-877-349-tips (8477) and without giving his or her name or any personal data, relays information regarding a crime: the whereabouts of a wanted person; or the facts of a crime that has not yet been committed. The caller is given a code number and remains anonymous.
Who is eligible for Crime Stoppers awards?
Any person who directly gives information which leads to the arrest of an adult
or juvenile, or the arrest of a fugitive is eligible for reward.
Law enforcement officers, their immediate families, the perpetrator or co-conspirator of a crime, a fugitive from justice or the immediate family of a Crime Stoppers board member are not eligible for rewards.
What Law enforcement agencies are involved with the Crime Stoppers program?
The Sheriff's Office and all Levy County police departments. The Law Enforcement Program Coordinator works with all Levy County Law Enforcement Agencies, exchanging information regarding Crime Stoppers Cases and tips received.
What can I do?
Take the time to fight crime. Call the toll free tips line and tell us what you know. Crime Stoppers does not use caller ID or record any telephone conversations. If we do not know who you are, you can't be called to court.
Does Crime Stoppers Work?
Absolutely. In Florida alone, based upon Crime Stoppers tips from twelve operating programs from the mid 1980's to 1993: 14,051 arrest have been made; 31,682 cases have been closed; $64 million dollars in stolen property has been recovered; and $380 million dollars worth of narcotics have been seized. All of this has been accomplished with an average reward payment per case solved of $54.89.
Who runs Crime Stoppers?
The Crime Stoppers organization is run by independent civilian Board of Directors representing all areas of Levy County. These people are everyday citizens dedicated to helping law enforcement solve crime in Levy County.
