CPD puts an end to crime spree

-A A +A
By David Davis

The Chiefland Police Department ended a two-week spree of several burglaries and vandalism at Chiefland High School and several unlocked cars from which they allegedly stole money and weapons.

The crimes were heightened because they were committed during a time of emergency and the burglaries were increased to armed robberies because they involved firearms.

Arrested were Blake Hyatt, 18, white, of Chiefland; Stephen Davis, 28, black, of Trenton; Cody Jackson, 17, white, Chiefland; and Izaak Evans, 17, white, of Chiefland. Isaac Smith, 24, black, of Chiefland, was named as an accomplice, but was not arrested.

Officer Kyle Schultz stated in an incident report that while on patrol Sept. 18, he continued his investigation during which he interviewed several suspects and witnesses.

He first interviewed Blake Hyatt at Chiefland Middle School under the supervision of School Resources Officer Deputy C. Gregory. Hyatt stated he may have been involved in some of the vehicle burglaries. At the police station, he was read his Miranda Warning, which he waived to speak with Schultz.
