Hudson man, 70, remains missing from his home

A 70-year-old Hudson man still is missing after leaving his house Saturday. Without telling anyone, Stanley E. Majkut reportedly left his house at 13710 Jennita Drive. A sheriff's report lists him as being endangered because he left his heart medication and may become disoriented.

Majkut has a weak heart and needs to take medication three or four times a day, according to his son.

Majkut left in a silver 1989 Honda Accord. He was wearing blue shorts, a yellow shirt and brown house slippers; he did not take any other clothing with him, his son said.

Man accused of having

illegal mushrooms

CRYSTAL SPRINGS _ A Crystal Springs man was arrested Sunday and charged with possession of illegal mushrooms.

Jerry Don Haygood, 21, had 12.3 grams of mushrooms in a brown bag on the back seat off his car, a sheriff's report stated.

The Sheriff's Office responded to a complaint that a car appeared to be broken down in the middle of Jerry Road and was blocking it.

The deputy investigating the complaint was told of an outstanding warrant for Haygood for the exhibition of a dangerous weapon in Levy County.

Haygood agreed to a vehicle search, and the deputy discovered the brown bag containing the mushrooms, the sheriff's report states.

Accompanying Haygood were his brother, Daniel Nelson Haygood, and Jerry Lynn Finley, who said they knew nothing of the mushrooms, according to the report.

Pet pig is captured,

returned to its owner

LAND O'LAKES _ A pet pig was captured early Sunday in the front yard of a home on Carson Drive.

The animal, a Vietnamese potbellied pig, belonged to a neighbor on the same street. An animal impound officer who works for the Sheriff's Office picked up the pig between midnight and 1 a.m. and impounded it until returning it to its owner.

This was the first time the Sheriff's Office has picked up a potbellied pig, according to Detective Roger Mills, who specializes in cases involving animal livestock. However, the Sheriff's Office captures hogs every month or two, Mills said.
