Three people were arrested in Levy County on Thursday when authorities swept through the Inglis area searching for one of the three.

Jason Adams, Kristi Hudak and Michael Samples were arrested for various outstanding warrants after deputies gathered information on the possible whereabouts of Adams, according to a news release from the Levy County Sheriff’s Office. They had been looking for Adams because he was wanted on three outstanding warrants and is a suspect in an ongoing robbery investigation.

Deputies along with members of the United States Marshals Service  first looked for Adams in a Linda Street home that he was known to often visit. Inside, they found a stash of guns, drugs and used syringes. The investigation into these items is ongoing.

Adams was found on another road, Debra Street, with Hudak, who was wanted for an outstanding violation-of-probation warrant in Citrus County.

Samples, found later elsewhere, first provided a false identity to the deputies, the release said. When his real information was discovered, deputies found he was wanted in Citrus County for a failure-to-appear warrant. He was charged with providing false information to law enforcement.

They were all arrested and taken to Levy County’s jail on the same day.

Levy County Sheriff Bobby McCallum said in the release that he will continue the fight against drug abuse and crimes associated with it.

“The men and women of this office work tirelessly in the fight against criminals that move into our community,” he said. “These deputies were able to take three wanted criminals off our streets and take their guns and drugs from them.”
