On Tuesday, September 29, 2009 at 1:15 pm, Hillsborough County Detectives arrested Samuel White who is a known admitted “DRAK” gang member.


Just hours earlier, Detectives received a tip that While would be inside 2601 Quinton Rd # 202, Park of Lake Magdalene Apartment complex. Detectives set up covert surveillance on the apartment waiting to spot White who is known to be violent and is listed as a violent felony offender. 


After watching the apartment for several hours, confirmation was made that White was inside the apartment. Detectives approached the apartment, knocked on the apartment door and announced that the apartment was surrounded. After several minutes passed by, White peacefully came out and surrendered. White was taken to the Hillsborough County Jail. Booking Photo on the jail log


Gang enforcement and prevention are a priority of Hillsborough County Sheriff David Gee. The 1-877-GANGOUT anonymous tip line is funded partly through a $2.5 million grant awarded to Tampa Bay area law enforcement agencies as part of the U.S. government's nationwide Comprehensive Anti-Gang Initiative. Resource and information sharing is one way the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office is helping to get gangs out of Hillsborough County. It's time to tell gangs: "Get Out. Stay Out. Gang Out."
