Dunnellon woman threatens to shoot several people, burn down home, deputies say

A 28-year-old Dunnellon woman is behind bars after she allegedly threatened to shoot several individuals and burn down a local residence.

On April 28, 2024, a landlord contacted the Marion County Sheriff’s Office regarding one of her tenants who had allegedly threatened to shoot her husband and burn their house down. The tenant was identified in the arrest report as Taylor Brea Cetina.

Upon arrival at the incident location, Cetina was located in the driveway, and she was detained in handcuffs.

An MCSO corporal made contact with the landlord and her husband, and they provided video surveillance footage of the incident. According to the report, the footage showed the husband/victim standing outside his home as he looked at Cetina, who was out of the camera’s view.

The corporal noted in the report that Cetina was heard telling the victim to “get the (expletive) inside.” She then continued to yell at the victim, threatening to “set this whole (expletive) on fire,” and she also threatened to “put a bullet” in the victim’s head.

According to the victim, Cetina was upset because she was recently told that she cannot use an RV that was located on the property. Shortly before the threatening statements were recorded on the video footage, the victim advised that Cetina retrieved a large propane tank out of the RV and set it against the home.

The victim advised that Cetina did not appear to have a firearm, but he was unsure what she was capable of since she had pulled out the propane tank.

The report stated that while Cetina was threatening the victim, she also reached out to her former boyfriend and threatened to shoot him because he had refused to bring a tractor to the location to dig a large hole.

The ex-boyfriend showed law enforcement a text message from a phone number belonging to Cetina that stated, “Keep (expletive) playing me like I’m (expletive) dumb I’ll put a bullet in every one of your (expletive) heads.”

After being read her Miranda rights, Cetina stated that she “lost her (expletive) and embarrassed herself.” She also advised that if she had threatened anyone during the incident, it was because she was “mad.”

Cetina further claimed that she did not remember what happened around the time of the incident, and the corporal noted in the report that she failed to answer multiple questions during the post-Miranda interview.

When Cetina was shown the video footage from the incident, she admitted that the voice heard on the footage was hers. She denied sending the threatening text message to her ex-boyfriend.

According to the report, Cetina had a purse in her possession, and it was searched by the corporal. During that search, a sandwich bag containing a green leafy substance was found, which field-tested positive for marijuana. Multiple Adderall pills were also located.

Cetina was arrested and transported to Marion County Jail, where she is currently being held without bond. She is facing the following charges: written threats to kill or do great bodily harm, assault on a person 65 years of age or older, possession of marijuana (20 grams or less), and possession of a controlled substance without a prescription.

A court date has not been scheduled yet, according to jail records.
