HCSO's Gang Enforcement Section Nabs Gang Members For Multiple Robberies


January 8, 2009


Fishhawk community







The Sheriff's Office Gang Enforcement Section has identified and arrested four gang members for an attack on four victims on January 4, 2009. The victims, two male and two female juveniles, were walking along a trail in the Fishhawk community in southern Hillsborough County when the suspects confronted them around 10 p.m. One of the suspects pulled out a large knife and threatened the juveniles. The suspects then punched the two male juveniles in the face before stealing their money and cellular telephones. When the victims tried to run away, the suspects chased them down, tackled them and struck them again.


The investigation identified concluded on January 8, 2009, when the Gang Enforcement Section arrested the suspects at their residences. All of the suspects are Latin Kings gang members, and all are charged with four counts of armed robbery, battery and grand theft.
