Levy County is located in Florida, southwest of Gainesville, on the coast of the Gulf of Mexico. Created in 1845 after the Seminole Wars, it was named for Daniel Levy, a plantation owner, attorney, and politician. Levy constructed the first railroad across Florida; it ran from Fernandina, north of Jacksonville on the Atlantic Ocean, to Cedar Key on the Gulf Coast in Levy County, and was finished in 1861. Cedar Key was a very important shipping port until a railroad reached Tampa in 1886, and ten years later the town was basically wiped out by a hurricane.

The population of Levy County, as of the 2010 census, was 40,801. The total area of the county is 1,413 square miles, with over 20% covered by water. The Suwannee River forms the northwestern border of the county, and the Withlacoochee River lies along the souther border. The county seat is Bronson, located in the northeast region of this largely rural area. Agriculture is important to the economy; farms produce vegetables, peanuts, beef, dairy, and other products. Along the coast, clam farming is an important industry.

Nearly 20% of the county is covered by state and national wildlife areas, including parks, springs, wildlife refuges, and preserves. Popular activities are boating, fishing, diving, snorkeling, horseback riding, hunting, wildlife viewing, and bird watching.

Homeowner Confronts Burglar in Home

February 18, 2018

At approximately 4:40 am February 18, 2018 Levy County Sheriff’s Office Deputies responded to a home in the Manatee Farms Subdivision off of CR 320 in Chiefland. A homeowner made an emergency 911 call to the Levy County Sheriff’s Office Communication Center to report a burglary to their home. The homeowner told 911 operators she was awakened by an unusual noise and was confronted by a burglar inside her home. The burglar grabbed her, which caused her to scream. Her screams awoke her husband who chased the suspect out of the home.

The husband, who had armed himself with a shotgun as he gave chase, reported seeing the suspect enter the family car parked in their driveway. The suspect then attempted to flee and in doing so, struck a tree on the property. The husband said the suspect exited their vehicle and began running. At one point the suspect turned toward him; and being fearful for his safety and the safety of his family inside the home, fired his shotgun at him.

The victims told deputies the suspect entered the home, stepping over their three children who were sleeping in the living room, to take household valuables. They also discovered the keys to the family vehicle had been removed from the husband’s truck parked outside. The suspect also took a jacket and other valuables from the husband’s truck.

Arriving deputies established a perimeter and deployed K-9’s from both the Sheriff’s Office and the Chiefland Police Department (CPD) to track the suspect. Shortly after establishing the perimeter, Lt. James Anderson heard a commotion in the woods near his location and saw the suspect attempting to escape. Lt. Anderson gave chase and apprehended the suspect after a brief foot pursuit.

The suspect, identified as John David Bogan (11-8-90) from Chiefland, was wearing clothing taken from the victims. Bogan, who was not injured by the victim, was transported to the Levy County Detention Facility and has been charged with the following crimes:

Burglary of an Occupied Dwelling
Grand Theft
Burglary of a Conveyance (a truck)
Burglary of a Conveyance (a car)
Grand Theft Auto
Petit Theft
Battery
Resisting Arrest without Violence

The cooperative efforts between deputies and the CPD allowed this suspect to be apprehended quickly. Bogan will appear before a local judge tomorrow morning for these charges. Until this time, he is being held without bond.

Update:

The following message is being sent as a combined notification with our partners in the Levy County School Board. Please know that both the Sheriff's Office and the Levy County School Board take the safety and security of "OUR" children when both on and off our campuses very serious. WE will react quickly and appropriately to any and all real or perceived threats.

Good Afternoon Parents,

This evening Gilchrist County and other school districts in Florida received a threat that they could not verify and Gilchrist closed schools. The School Board of Levy County has not received this threat. The Levy County Sheriff’s Office is monitoring social media and investigating any suspicious activity concerning Levy County schools.

Currently a viral photo is being passed around through Snapchat. This photo has been reported to the LCSO as well as other Florida law enforcement agencies. The photo has been addressed by authorities in South Carolina and an arrest was made. We want to thank our parents for helping us keep our vigil and ensure the safety of all our children.

The LCSO and the Levy County School Board sends this strong message to anyone who makes a threat of violence directed toward our children and our schools. “We will seek you out, arrest you and you will be prosecuted to the fullest extent the law will allow us to.“

Parents, students and concerned citizens. Please, if you see something, say something. Report suspicious activity to the LCSO at 352-486-5111 or if it is an emergency call 911.

Good Afternoon Parents,

We wanted to inform everyone as soon as possible that we were notified by a very proactive student and teacher regarding a social media post. This post was circulating among students and referenced how to stay safe in the event of a school shooting. Law enforcement made contact and interviewed the student responsible for the social media post. During the interview it was determined that there was no threat to any student, faculty, and/or staff member. The student stated the post was created in reference to the unfortunate events that occurred in Broward County yesterday afternoon. The school, district office, and sheriff’s office are always diligently working together to ensure the safety of all students and schools.
