Hillsborough's Cell Block Shakedown nets one more arrest

TAMPA — Another top 10 fugitive featured on the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office online Cell Block Shakedown was arrested on Monday night.

Deputies had been watching the home of 38-year-old Christopher Davis's mother, 9832 Fan Palm Way in Tampa. Davis was wanted for failure to file tax returns, theft of state funds and drug possession.

At 8 p.m. Monday, deputies noticed vehicles in the driveway that hadn't been there earlier. One of the cars' tags was registered to one of Davis's former addresses, and another was registered to his name.

An undercover deputy, acting as an old friend of Davis, knocked on his mother's front door and asked about one of the cars.

When he started walking away, he heard Davis's mother yell, "Chris, you need to check your car."

At that point, nearby uniformed deputies approached the house and questioned the woman, who said she was at home with her son and his friend.

Deputies then went inside and arrested Davis on charges of trafficking methamphetamine, delivery of methamphetamine, possession of methamphetamine, conspiracy to delivery methamphetamine and violating probation for theft of state funds, failure to file tax returns and possession of a controlled substance.

  3. Poorly assembled 'Lego Ninjago Movie' waters down Lego movie franchise


    Well, that didn't take long.

    After only three movies, the Lego franchise is already a shadow of its original self, less irreverent and go-for-broke bricky. The watering down of an ingenious formula comes with The Lego Ninjago Movie, the sort we expected all along from plastic construction toys.

    Hurricane Irma brought a hiccup to twice-weekly curbside trash service in Pasco County.

Pasco officials are asking for patience about the slow pace of residential trash service from private haulers. In some areas, trash hasn't been collected since Friday, Sept. 8, because of the volume of waste left after Hurricane Irma.
