Eight Robles Park Gang Members And Associates Indicted For Drug Trafficking Violations

Tampa, Florida – United States Attorney Maria Chapa Lopez announces the unsealing of an indictment charging eight members of a drug trafficking organization with offenses related to the distribution of cocaine and heroin. (See chart for details).    

According to court records, this investigation targeted illegal drug traffickers operating an open-air drug market in the Robles Park Housing Community in Tampa. During the course of the investigation, law enforcement officers seized approximately 2.5 kilograms of cocaine and approximately $52,000.

An indictment is merely a formal charge that a defendant has committed one or more violations of federal criminal law, and every defendant is presumed innocent unless, and until, proven guilty.

This investigation is the result of a partnership between the United States Attorney’s Office, the Drug Enforcement Administration, the Tampa Police Department, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Florida Highway Patrol, and the Lakeland Police Department. It will be prosecuted by the Assistant United States Attorney Callan L. Albritton.

This investigation is the result of the Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Forces (OCDETF) program. The principal mission of the OCDETF program is to identify, disrupt, and dismantle the most serious drug trafficking and money laundering organizations and those primarily responsible for the nation’s drug supply.
