York-Poquoson Sheriff’s Office deputies flew to Florida last week to extradite a Hampton man charged with grand larceny.

Tristan Levonn Mason, 28, has been charged with seven counts of credit card larceny, one count of petit larceny, two counts of grand larceny, and four counts of entering or setting into motion a vehicle, and failure to appear, according to online records.

Deputies traveled to Hillsborough County, Fla., after Mason turned himself in, according to York-Poquoson Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Shelley Ward.

The exact dates of the deputies’ travel initially were unavailable, and Ward said she would provide that information on Tuesday.

Mason was admitted into the Virginia Peninsula Regional Jail on Sept. 26 at 6:24 p.m., according to jail records. His last known address was in Hampton.

Mason was charged with credit card larceny in 2016 and took his case to a jury trial, according to York-Poquoson Circuit Court online records.

Mason skipped an April 2018 review of his case in York-Poquoson Circuit Court, according to online court records, and was charged with failure to appear.

Mason is scheduled to appear on both charges in circuit court on Oct. 23, according to online court records.

On Nov. 13, Mason is scheduled to appear for the credit card larceny, grand larceny, entering or setting into motion a vehicle and petit larceny charges, according to York-Poquoson General District Court online records.
