Twenty-five corrections officers from the Baltimore City Detention Center were indicted on Tuesday over charges that they allowed a dangerous gang run the Baltimore, Maryland jail. Thirteen of the officers were female and four were allegedly impregnated by inmate Tavon “Bulldog” White, head of the Black Guerrilla Family.
Authorities say since entering the facility in 2009 on attempted murder charges, White has been “building a network of corruption.” During a phone call, the gang leader was recorded as saying, “This is my jail. I’m dead serious. I make every final call in this jail and nothing go [sic] past me, everything come to me.”
According to the Federal indictments, White had numerous sexual relationships with female corrections officers at the detention center. Four of those relationships allegedly resulted in the gang leader siring five children. The indictment also says that the officers were so smitten with White, two of the guards had tattoos of his name on their bodies – one on her wrist and another on her neck.
WIth the prison guards wrapped around his finger, authorities say 36-year-old White was able to “manage gang activity on the city streets” and run a smuggling operation within the prison walls. Prosecutors say White would brag about earning $16,000 during a “slow month,” selling $10 Percocet pills for $30 while also selling one-gram bags of marijuana for $50, netting White a profit of about $1,000 per ounce.
