A young man from Williston is on the “most wanted” list after bonding out last week following an arrest and also investigation into two separate incidents.
Decoda Kadarrell King, 21, of Northeast 35th Street, was stopped by Officer James Tegart after not coming to a proper stop at a stop sign. He allegedly gave the officer a false name before his companion in the car told the police his real name. He was charged with driving with a suspended license and giving false information to a law enforcement officer. He bonded out on the same day.
At the same time, King was being investigated for a shooting incident on Jan. 4 in which a car he was allegedly driving struck another man, giving him a possible broken leg and head lacerations. Shots had been fired in the neighborhood.
Police eventually found the car, a rental from Gainesville, and then located King. Police say the investigation continues.
Meanwhile, the Sheriff’s Office, in its weekly “most wanted” list, posted King’s name and photo, saying he was wanted for failure to appear on charges of sale and possession of cocaine. Bond is to be set at $30,000.
In other arrests:
Santrice M. James, 24, of Ocala, was charged with possession of marijuana less than 20 grams after he was stopped by Officer Kevin Sheppard for not coming to a complete stop at a stop sign. A K-9 unit arrived during the traffic stop and alerted officers to the presence of marijuana.
Gerald John Gerardi, 56, of Southwest 141st Avenue, Archer, was charged with driving while license was suspended or revoked, attaching an unassigned tag and resisting a law enforcement officer without violence after he was seen driving when he had told officers he didn’t drive. His license had been cancelled for failure to complete a substance abuse class in 2006.
Abby L. Ross, 44, of Beverly Hills (Fla.), was arrested on a Levy County warrant for three counts of failure to appear for drugs, possession of a controlled substance without a prescription. Total bond $30,000.
