INGLIS, Fla. (FOX 35 WOFL) - The Levy County Sheriff's Office reports that a family disturbance in Inglis ended with an arrest.
Deputies say they responded to a family disturbance at a home in Inglis. They spoke to family members who described 42-year-old Kenneth A. Everts as brandishing a firearm and making non-specific threats. Fanily members said that Everts took several firearms and placed them inside of his truck then fled the home prior to the deputy's arrival.
Everts reportedly returned to the home after deputies began their investigation and was taken into custody. Deputies say they discovered a bullet proof vest inside his vehicle. Everts was questioned about the firearms family said he had, but he denied ever possessing a gun, stating that he was a convicted felon and was prohibited from owning one.
However, deputies say that Everts eventually confessed to dropping several guns off at a friend's home before returning to his home. He told deputies how to find the friend's home and deputies recovered two AK 47’s, a shotgun, and two pistols. Everts also reportedly dropped off ammunition, large knives, smoke grenades, brass knuckles, holsters and a mask at the residence.
Everts was arrested for possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and transported to the Levy County Detention Facility. He is currently being held on a $200,000.00 bond.
