Summerfield man nabbed with hypodermic needle stuck in his arm

Kevin Allen Oliver

A Summerfield man wanted on warrants was caught with a hypodermic needle sticking out of his arm Monday morning.

Marion County Sheriff’s Property Crimes detectives went to a residence in the 14800 block of SE 100th Ct. in search of 43-year-old Kevin Allen Oliver, who was wanted on two active warrants from Sumter and Marion counties. Upon arrival, the homeowner allowed them to enter the residence and told them that Oliver was in his bathroom, a sheriff’s office report states.

A short time later, detectives entered the bathroom and located Oliver seated on the edge of the bathtub with his hands in the tub. They soon realized he had a hypodermic needle stuck in his arm, which he removed and then raised his hands in the air, the report says.

Oliver was detained and detectives retrieved the needle, which contained a brown liquid substance that field tested positive for heroin. He was transported to the South Marion District Office in The Villages and after being read his rights, Oliver told detectives he had developed an opiate addiction and the heroin was for his personal use, the report says.

Oliver was then transported to the Marion County Jail, where he was charged with possession of a controlled substance (heroin) without a prescription and possession of drug equipment. He was released Tuesday night on $2,500 bond and is due in court Aug. 27 at 9 a.m. to answer to the charges.

Oliver is no stranger to the Marion County legal system, having been held in the jail 11 times since July 2006. During those arrests he’s faced charges – some more than once – of driving with a suspended or revoked license, fraudulent use of personal identification/information, burglary of a conveyance, grand theft, petit theft, retail petit theft, dealing in stolen property, grand theft of a motor vehicle and unauthorized connection to utility equipment.

Oliver also has been arrested on multiple warrants and for violating probation and failure to appear in court on various charges, jail records show.
