Bronson Man Arrested for Grand Theft, Stole Son's Car
Ronald Joyner was arrested on Monday in Bronson and charged with grand theft auto and petit theft. Joyner's son said he awoke at 2:15 this morning to realize that both his father and his 2002 Kia were missing.
Joyner, 46, who was just recently released from prison, was found inside the stolen vehicle behind the Bronson Post Office, which according to the Levy County Sheriff's Department, is a well known drug hangout. Joyner was taken into custody by a deputy from the Levy County Sheriff's Office without incident.
Court records indicate that Joyner was convicted and sentenced this past February for another count of grand theft auto and was released in July.
According to Joyner's son, Joyner was living with him until he could find his own place to live. Joyner's son said he was aware that his father had a drug problem.
In addition to the car, Joyner also allegedly stole $50 from his son's piggy bank.
