- Federal investigators say 13 female guards were in on the scheme at Baltimore City Detention Center
- Allowed members of notorious Black Guerrilla Family gang to smuggle in prescription drugs and cell phones
- One gang member boasted: ‘I make every final call in this jail’
Tavon White, the leader of a jailhouse gang called the Black Guerrilla Family, has fathered five children from four different prison guards all while locked up. This was part of a large scale scheme by White and other gang member inmates who secretly took control of this Baltimore prison.
13 female correctional officers are reported to have been seduced and bribed by these inmates. These officers, 7 inmates and 5 more people with gang ties are all being charged with a plot to smuggle drugs, cellphones, and other products into this jail as well as other Baltimore correctional facilities.
Investigators believe that this criminal operation was able to come about by the way in which gang members targeted the female officers. Those with low self-esteem and other insecurities were sought after. It is also reported that two of the female officers got tattoos of White’s name on themselves.
This seduction and criminal operation allowed White to purchase a BMW and a Mercedes, but he was eventually caught by a wiretapped cellphone. He was recorded to have said “This is my jail, You understand that? I’m dead serious. I make every final call in this jail.”
