By Jeff M. Hardison

Chiefland Police Det. Sgt. Chris Barwick arrested a 23-year-old Trenton man on Nov. 9 for the July 19 armed robbery and grand theft from the Sunstate Federal Credit Union.

CPD Chief Robert Douglas said he and Barwick went to the workplace of Joshua Kane O'Hara on Nov. 8 to arrest him after they received information showing O'Hara was the bank robber who the CPD had been seeking for the past four months.

O'Hara was arrested by Barwick at the Levy County Jail, after O'Hara had surrendered himself on a charge of attempted sexual battery earlier on Nov. 9. After being advised of his rights under the U.S. Constitution, O'Hara confessed to the armed robbery of the credit union, according to records. During his confession, the suspect said he had lost his job and borrowed his friend's silver Dodge Neon, records showed.
