Located on Florida’s northwest coast of the Gulf of Mexico, Dixie County is home to approximately 16,422 residents. It was established from the southern part of Lafayette County in 1921. The eastern border is formed by the Suwannee River. The county seat, Cross City, lies near the center of the 864 square miles comprising the total area. The city was originally called Cross Roads due to its location at the junction of the Old Spanish Trail, running from St. Augustine to Pensacola, and the Old Salt Road, from Madisonville to Horseshoe Beach. General Andrew Jackson led several battles in the area against the natives during the Seminole Wars in the early 1800s. Principal industries include commercial fishing (both saltwater and freshwater), logging, and farming. Much of the county is covered by marshland.

The 95-bed Dixie County Jail is under the authority of the Sheriff’s Office. Located at 386 NE 255 Street, Cross City, Florida 32628, it houses both male and female adult and juvenile offenders.

An Open Letter to the Citizens of Florida:

As Florida sheriffs we have taken an oath to serve and protect the citizens of this great state and are obligated to warn you of the dangers of Amendment 2. Our desire is not to debate the validity of marijuana as a medicine, but to inform you that Amendment 2 is still a wolf in sheep's clothing riddled with loopholes large enough to float a battleship through. Amendment 2 is a slippery slope toward full legalization of marijuana.

Medical marijuana is already legally available in Florida by statute. It is available for the very sick and dying. The law also allows for medical marijuana use for children with seizures, cancer patients, Parkinson’s patients, those suffering with ALS, and the terminally ill. There are already six approved and regulated dispensaries growing and delivering medical marijuana to qualified patients. There is no need to put medical marijuana in our State Constitution; it must not be a constitutional right to smoke pot.

Dozens of medical associations do not support smoking pot as an effective medicine: The American and Florida Medical Associations, American Cancer Society, American Academy of Addiction Psychiatry, American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, American Glaucoma Society, the American Academy of Pediatrics, American Psychiatric Association, American Society of Addiction Medicine, the American Academy of Family Physicians, the American Epilepsy Society, and the American Academy of Ophthalmology.

Who should Floridians believe when it comes to the health and safety of our state? Hundreds of medical professionals and the law enforcement agencies that protect them, or a pro-pot lobby run by those who would make millions from opening their own dispensaries and an over-the-top ambulance chaser?

Amending the Florida Constitution is a dangerous proposition; it gives regulatory authority to state agencies, rather than the Legislature. There is no mechanism in the amendment for the Legislature to step in and place regulations beyond the amendment language. This means that when, not if, problems and abuse arise from the passage of this amendment, there is no legal way for the Legislature to solve the problem. Their hands will be tied, as will those of state and local law enforcement agencies.

This experiment is a threat to you as a citizen of Florida, and we cannot stand idly by without warning you about the dangerous side effects of legalization and the irreversible dangers it presents. We hope that you will vote your own conscience and keep Florida the great state we all love.

Sincerely yours,

Sheriff Larry Ashley, Okaloosa County

On September 4th, the Dixie County Sheriff’s Office received a call reporting an assault and sexual battery. When the deputy arrived he discovered the victim required transportation to a medical facility and the Dixie County Emergency Services transported the victim to an area hospital. During the ensuing follow-up investigation, the Gainesville Police Department assisted the Sheriff’s Office with the evidence obtained at the hospital while Dixie County deputies located witness(s) to be interviewed.
According to the complaint, the victim and another male were at the suspect’s, Randall D. Fowler’s, home between September 1st and September 4th. During that time the parties engaged in using illegal drugs after which Fowler became violent. Fowler then armed himself with a firearm and threatened both parties with harm while forcing them, a 20 year old male and 53 year old female, to engage in sexual intercourse while he watched the sexual act. After this was done, Fowler refused to allow the two victims to leave the residence. While Fowler had the two parties still inside the residence, which is a small camper trailer, Fowler left to go to a next door neighbor’s home. When he left the trailer, he padlocked the outside door preventing the two victims from leaving. Fowler returned from the neighbor’s home and again refused to allow the two victims to leave the residence. Fowler later himself required medical treatment, and when he left for this treatment, he failed to lock the door behind him which is when the two victims were able to leave the trailer which is when law enforcement was called.
On September 7th, Fowler was arrested on the charges of Forcible Sexual Battery while Armed with a Deadly Weapon, Aggravated Assault with a Firearm 2 counts, False Imprisonment 2 counts and Possession of a Firearm by a Convicted Felon.
On September 8th, Fowler was also arrested by the Department of Corrections Probation and Parole for a Violation of Conditional Release involving Sexual Battery which stems from Fowler’s previous prison sentence and parole from a previous Sexual Battery in Marion County in 2004.

Shortly after 2:00am the Dixie County Sheriff’s Office received a call from a complainant on NE 349 Hwy in Old Town. According to the complainant, he had a family member, Charles Randall Miller, at his residence who had been creating a disturbance. When the deputy arrived, Miller had left the scene and returned to his property which is separated by a small wood area. While the deputy was in the complainant’s front yard talking with the complainant, there were several rounds of gunfire in their direction. The deputy then placed the complainant and another witness behind his patrol unit for cover and identified himself as law enforcement. At that time Miller again fired several rounds at the deputy at which point the deputy returned fire. Miller retreated back into the wooded area and once in the wooded area again fired additional rounds. At this point the deputy requested additional assistance to the shots fired. Additional Dixie County Sheriff’s units responded along with six Seminole County Sheriff’s units that were in Dixie County’s coastal areas working the hurricane Hermine detail. The first responding Seminole County units were able to hear Miller inside his residence yelling at law enforcement to come in and get him. These responding deputies secured the perimeter surrounding the home and removed the complainant and witnesses from the area.
Additional Dixie County Sheriff’s personnel were called to the scene and attempts were made by them and Sheriff Hatcher to establish communication with Miller. After being unable to establish communication with Miller, Sheriff Hatcher requested the assistance of the Alachua County Sheriff’s Office’s SWAT team at 4:10am. Alachua County requested that Dixie County also request the assistance of the Marion County SWAT team as supplemental personnel. Along with the outside Sheriff’s Office’s, additional agencies involved included the Dixie County Emergency Medical Services and the Cross City and Mayo Correctional K-9 teams. The SWAT teams were deployed around the home while the initial Dixie County deputy met with the State’s Attorney and Judge in order to secure arrest and search warrants.
After all efforts to establish communication with Miller failed, the SWAT teams breached the front the entry of the home and during this time, Miller surrendered to law enforcement. Miller was arrested on two counts of Aggravated Assault with a Firearm and one count of Aggravated Assault on a Law Enforcement Officer with a Firearm. Miller, 60 years of age from Old Town, is currently being held in the Dixie County Jail awaiting his first appearance in court.
During the subsequent search of Miller’s residence several firearms and various rounds of ammunition were recovered as evidence.

Shortly after 11:00pm on Tuesday night the Dixie County Sheriff’s Dispatch received a call from a female caller who said that someone was knocking on her door and requesting them to call 911. The caller who lives on NE 173 Avenue in Old Town could not provide any details and a deputy was dispatched to the area. When the first responding deputy arrived, she found a white male subject in a driveway across the street from the original caller. After determining the nature of his complaint, the deputy and another responding deputy entered the residence and discovered a white female identified as Donna Williams, 56 years of age from Old Town. Deputies quickly determined that Williams was the apparent victim of a homicide and checked the other locations on the property where they found another victim in a shed outside of the primary residence of the home. This second victim, a male subject was unconscious and the apparent victim of an attempted homicide. Dixie County EMS arrived minutes later and transported the male victim to a designated landing zone where they met a responding medical helicopter who transported the male victim to an area hospital.
Investigators requested the Florida Department of Law Enforcement Crime Scene Unit and the 8th Circuit Medical Examiner from Gainesville to respond to the scene and assist investigators with the processing of the scene. Throughout the night, investigators were able to identify acquaintances and contacts of the victims. During the course of the day, a suspect living in the Fanning Springs area of Levy County was identified and during the course of identifying him, investigators were able to establish enough facts to obtain a search warrant for the property where he lived. While this was occurring, other investigators located the suspect in another area of Levy County. Dixie County investigators then traveled to Gainesville to obtain a search warrant for the Fanning Springs property, which is in the 8th Circuit, while Levy County deputies maintained security on the property. After returning with the search warrant, at approximately 6:30pm on Wednesday evening, investigators with the Levy County Sheriff’s Office executed the warrant on behalf of the Dixie County Sheriff’s Office. As the two agencies worked to search the property, items of evidence were recovered, that even further linked the suspect to the homicide.
As a result of this investigation, Joasa Roy Ware, 27 years of age from Trenton, has been arrested and charged in this homicide. Ware is currently being held in the Dixie County Jail and is charged with Murder, Attempted Felony Murder and two counts of Grand Theft. Ware is still awaiting his initial court appearance at this time.
The second male victim, is still in an area hospital and unable to communicate with investigators.
