Gov. Rick Scott may be crowing about Florida having its lowest crime rate in 30 years in 2010 with a drop of 6.6 percent, but Levy County experienced a 4.1 percent increase in crime.
The numbers released by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement on Monday come from crime report information submitted by local law enforcement agencies to the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
According to the report:
• Population went from an estimated 40,674 residents to 41,451 in 2010
• Murder was down from 1 murder in 2009, to none in 2010
