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.

Fired School Employee Arrested for Criminal Sexual Behavior


The Levy County Sheriff’s Office

arrested 26-year-old Deonte J. White

on Jan. 27 for lewd and lascivious

battery on a minor between the ages of

12 and 16.
White was a physical education teache
r

and sometimes a bus driver at Vision

Christian Academy in Raleigh, just

outside of Williston, according to the LCSO arrest report.  After dropping off all the other students, White is reported to have stopped at a local cemetery and engaged in the sexual criminal behavior for the past year.
White has been discharged from the school and is being held in Levy County Jail on a $150,000 bond.



Williston Man Arrested for Molesting Children


Levy County Sheriff’s Office

investigators arrested 59-year-old Mark

Kristian Stringer of Williston on Jan.

17 on multiple charges including video

voyeurism and 2 counts of lewd or

lascivious battery of a minor child. 

A report was made to the Florida

Department of Children and Families Abuse Hotline and investigators responded to Stringer’s home and ultimately arrested him.
Investigators took statements from several minor children who had been inside Stringer’s home. The investigators determined Stringer used video equipment inside his home to record young girls as they exited the shower.  Stringer confessed to placing the cameras. According to the victims, Stringer had been molesting children over a period of years.  Investigators believe Stringer used opportunities he created himself to perpetrate the crimes.
LCSO personnel believe there could be additional victims or others who have information which could assist in this investigation and are requesting anyone who may have information about Mark Stringer to call LCSO at 352/486-5111 and request to speak to Sgt. Mike Narayan. Should callers wish to remain anonymous, please call Crime Stoppers at 1-877-349-847.
