Fruitland Park, FL (January 24, 2019) – Police arrested two men after they terrorized a man and woman at their home in Fruitland Park. The two men were arrested early Sunday morning.
Police reported that 25-year-old Levi Locke and 31-year-old Travis Edwards of Fruitland Park were arrested for aggravated stalking and criminal mischief after a husband and wife faced ongoing harassment at their home due to the two men’s actions.
Locke arrived at the home on Leesburg Boulevard and did a burnout on the couple’s lawn in his pickup truck. He then fired a BB gun at the couple’s vehicle and damaged it. Deputies arrived at the scene to find that the two men were arguing with the couple and dared them to step off of their property so that they could fight.
Both men were arrested and booked at the Lake County Jail. Edwards has since posted a bond and Locke was held without bond since he was on probation at the time of his arrest.
