Two Levy County Teens Charged With Stealing Three Cars


Kennith Baldinelli, 17, of Melrose and Titan O. Chaney, 15, of Middleburg were arrested on Sunday in Georgia after stealing three cars, according to law enforcement.

Baldinelli and Chaney stole a car from the Melrose area to meet a girl in Williston. They later left the car shortly after they met her and stole a 2006 Pontiac from a home near Williston.

They then abandoned the Pontiac at a store and went on to steal a 2007 Chevrolet Silverado from a nearby home, at which point the girl left.

The owner of the Silverado immediately reported the truck as stolen and it was entered into a nationwide database as a stolen vehicle. The Tift County Sheriff’s Office (TCSO) in Georgia then located the car and arrested them.

They were placed in a juvenile detention center where TCSO notified Levy County Sheriff’s Office of the arrest.

Baldinelli and Chaney will face two counts of grand theft of a motor vehicle in Levy County while Alachua County Sheriff’s Office is expected to file additional charges in their jurisdiction.
