Lebanon Levi of the Discovery Channel’s ‘Amish Mafia’ will be at the Matthews Public Library in Fredericksburg, Lebanon County, on Sunday, March 24.
In preparation of the Mafia’s stars appearance, the Bethel Township Board of Supervisors granted approval for the township fire police to assist in traffic control for the special event at the Matthews Library.
The Township’s Chairwoman Beverly Martel said at the board’s meeting Thursday night that more than 250 tickets have been sold for the event. The event is set for 2 to 5 p.m. There is no word if Esther or Merlin might show up to create problems for Levi.
Local media is reporting that over 200 people – some as far away as Erie – have bought tickets to meet and greet Lebanon Levi at the Matthews Public Library in Fredericksburg. The Tony Soprano of the Pennsylvania Dutch Country - as portrayed on the Discovery Channel’s Amish Mafia – will be making an appearance at the library from 2 to 5 p.m. on Sunday, March 24.
Tickets to see Lebanon Levi in person cost $10 and can be purchased online at http://www.lclibs.org/matthews or by visiting the library at 102 W. Main St. Proceeds from ticket sales will benefit the library.
Extra security will be at the library, should that pesky Merlin show up and try to cause trouble during Lebanon Levi’s appearance.

There is no indication if Esther or any of the other mafia members will be appearing with Levi. He has been busy in the area filming the next season of Amish Mafia which is due to be broadcast next month.
Rumor has it that Lebanon Levi has returned to Lancaster. The main in charge of the Amish Mafia, accoording to the Discovery Channel, was reportedly spotted at the Shamrock Cafe, located at 312 West Walnut Street. No word on who was accompanying the head honcho of the Amish Mafia.
Lebanon Levi of the Amish Mafia
Discovery Channel’s Amish Mafia TV Show features Lebanon Levi and his gang that roam the Amish settlements here in Lancaster County, PA. Levi is apparantly is also in the No Trespassing enforcement business.
Don’t even think about trespassing on this farm, unless you want to meet Lebanon Levi, Esther, and the rest of the Amish Mafia.
During a recent photo assignment, I spotted this sign. It was deep in the heart of the Amish country. Although I was able to take this photograph, I did not see Lebanon Levi or Esther. I suspect they were closeby and watching me, however.
The notorious Lebanon Levi, the leader of the Amish Mafia – depicted on the Discovery Channel’s hit show by the same name – has been positively identified as Levi King Stoltzfus. He lives in Richland, Lebanon County, and is a member of the local Neptune Fire Company.
According to published reports now in both the Lancaster and Lebanon newspapers, Levi is not Amish as he has never joined the Amish Church.
He is not giving interviews, either.
The Lebanon Daily News reports Levi was recently spotted in a cellular phone store and at a local restaurant.
A barn in Lancaster County is protected by Lebanon Levi and the Amish Mafia.
Looking for Lebanon Levi is both tiring and exasperating.
The illusive Amishman was no where to be found this past weekend in Lancaster County, PA. Not only was Levi not spotted, but neither were any of his Amish Mafia. A special effort was made to find the mischievous Esther without any luck.
I was able to find solid evidence that Lebanon Levi and his gang are active and working in Lancaster County. Following several leads, I was able to find one of the Amish Mafia’s hangouts.
The search for Levi and Esther will continue.
It looks like the Amish Mafia’s Lebanon Levi could be having turf problems.
The Glassworks in Lancaster County is no longer protected by Levi Lebanon and his Amish Mafia gang – Strasburg Sam is now providing protection.
A downtown Lancaster Art Gallery, the Glassworks, is no longer protected by Levi and his gang of Amish enforcers. A sign on the front door declares that “protection now provided by Strasburg Sam.” The store was featured in a newspaper article about the Amish Mafia.
Neither Lebanon Levi nor Strasburg Sam could be contacted for comment.
According to their Facebook Page, the Lancaster City Police says they are not the Lancaster County Police Department, at least the one that is shown on the Discovery Channel’s “Amish Mafia.”
Of course, you can understand the confusion when you look at the city police Facebook page. The main photo is enough to make Lebanon Levi lose control.
Lancaster City Police sets the record straight with this posting on its Facebook page:
“NAME CLARIFICATION: We are the Lancaster City Police Department. We have been serving Lancaster City for well over 200 years. If you are looking for the Lancaster County Police Department, as depicted on a fictional cable TV show, you may want to look elsewhere.”
Here is the “rap” sheet the production company inciuded in the TV show”
Notice the mistake? The rap sheet is “issued” from the Lancaster County Police Department – and there is no such thing here in Lancaster County, PA. But those City Police Officers are apparantly being confused with those non-existant Lancaster County Police Officers.
I guess this just proves that Lebanon Levi and his Amish Mafia really can cause a lot of havoc and mayhem here in the fields and backroads – as well as the Amish and Mennonite communities. Seems like he even got the attention of the real Lancaster Police – and not those from the Lancaster County Police Department.
