TWO SEARCH WARRANTS BREAK UP BURGLARY AND NARCOTICS RING

Two simultaneous search warrants were served on Crawfordville homes Wakulla County Sheriff’s Office officials believe to be involved in a burglary and narcotics ring.

“The six month investigation included 19 people from my office, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission and the U.S. Marshal’s Office,” said Wakulla County Sheriff David Harvey. “The search warrants allowed law enforcement to arrest two Crawfordville men and seize more than 200 pieces of stolen property valued at nearly $56,000.” The operation began at approximately 5 p.m. Wednesday, April 13 and concluded at 2 a.m. Thursday, April 14.

Garrett Mizell Revell, 25, of 238 Carraway Cutoff in Crawfordville, was charged with grand theft, burglary, possession of methamphetamines, possession of drug paraphernalia, resisting an officer without violence and numerous other charges that are pending.

Cameron William Wesson, 22, of Crawfordville was charged with burglary and grand theft in the case as he returned to the Carraway Cutoff location while law enforcement officials were in the process of serving the warrant, said the sheriff. Wesson was unaware of the active warrant for his arrest.

The stolen property included: welders, four wheelers, tools, diving equipment, fishing rods, commercial grade air compressors, computer equipment and more.

“While the search warrant was being served, Garrett Revell attempted to flee from the location but was apprehended by Detectives Nick Boutwell and Derek Lawhon,” said Sheriff Harvey. “During the course of the arrest, a plastic ink pen was discovered on Revell that had been used for smoking methamphetamines and residue was discovered that is consistent with smoking methamphetamines.”

In addition, a venomous cottonmouth snake was discovered inside the home in an aquarium and FWC officials will be charging Revell with felony possession of a venomous snake without a license. Investigators also discovered night vision glasses, camouflage clothing, gloves and masks and evidence of digital images of sheriff’s office staff work vehicles. A number of the vehicles have been vandalized in the past several months. A small boat and boat motor owned by Revell was seized. Investigators believe Revell was involved in the manufacture of methamphetamines on the vessel.

At the same time the Carraway Cutoff search warrant was served, a second search warrant was served at 111 Purify Bay Road in Crawfordville. Stolen property was also recovered from the Purify Bay Road location. No arrests were made during the Purify Bay Road operation.

“Six other arrests attached to this investigation are anticipated and warrants have been issued,” said Sheriff Harvey. “The investigation is ongoing as we attempt to locate scores of victims in this and other jurisdictions.”

Revell is being held in the Wakulla County Jail under a $50,000 bond and Wesson is being held in jail under a $20,000 bond.

“With these two arrests and the pending warrants we will be able to clear dozens of burglary cases from 2010 and 2011,” the sheriff concluded.

    Mr. Revell, yes i agree that he was doing no good. He deserves to be punished, not to be belittled by Wakulla County Citizens. but wakulla county come on? is this all you people have to do all day is sit and talk down to these two young men and their families. you should be ashamed of yourselves. Mr. Wesson, also had a previous charge but, yet again it was not serious. Wesson is attempting to straighten out his life and trying to stay out of trouble. So before, everyone and anyone tries and crushes whats left of these boys self-esteem think back and add up all the little things you have done in your ife. they add up dont they? just not this bad. but technically, wrong doing is wrong doing. no matter the level of severity. so you all need to reconsider before talking "trash".

    These are not what we normally consider "good" guys. Good guys do NOT use drugs. Good guys do not steal. good guys go to work and earn money to purchase items. they do not sit on their lazy butts and then go steal from others. Bad guys, such as these two, have their photos in the media so that everyone can see what truly low life people they are. They are the opposite of "good." If you consider them to be "good" guys, you're part of their problem.

    You should not judge these young men they both were very good boys and they got mixed up in the wrong crowds and did things they will now regret. Everyone of us make mistakes but it isnt broadcasted on the news or maybe arent as bad but none of us are perfect. I hope they receive the help they need to straighten up their lives!

      I don't get the "Everyone of us make mistakes" defense. I NEVER, EVER made a mistake that was a felony or even a misdemeanor. I ran a stop sign one time... does that count? What these two did was willful, blatant disrespect of the law, not a "mistake".

    So these two "made a mistake...". Let's lock them up with Mayor Marks and Charles Trippe because they "made a mistake too.". How come the lower class gets locked up and the "upper crust" gets to apologize? They should ALL be behind bars.

    "sweet & well mannered" does not describe this situation. How about you are the victim? Ah.... wake up and see the light! Guilty as charged.

    Two thugs who need to be put in prison, of course, once released they will re-offend and this will be the pattern for the rest of their lives. Thugs.
