  • Teens take three vehicles before spree ends

    The third time was a strike when two teenagers allegedly stole three different vehicles in and around the Williston area.

    According to the Levy County Sheriff’s office, Kennith Baldinelli, 17, of Melrose and Titan O. Chaney, 15, of Middleburg stole a car to meet a girl in Williston.

    When they arrived in town, they ditched the first car they had stolen from the Melrose area of Alachua County. This vehicle was recovered by the Levy County Sheriff’s Office but no arrests were made because no suspects had yet been identified.

  • Teens arrested in series of thefts

    Three Williston teens were arrested by Levy County Sheriff’s Office investigators last week and charged with several cases during a February crime spree.

    Zachary L. Chism, 14, Daniel Melendez, 16, and Tyler A. Dutka, 16, have been charged with multiple crimes. Investigators Scott Stancil and CJ Perryman identified Dutka as a potential suspect while working on an unrelated investigation.
