Hunt for Dontae Morris ends in ‘quiet’ capture at South Tampa law firm Fernandez Larkin & Garcia PA, a law office in a converted house on Azeele Street.
Jail records show he turned himself in at the law office address, but police said Sunday they would not confirm whether the law firm helped capture him.
Through a representative, the law office declined to comment. The small association’s lawyers often handle criminal cases, most notably representing a father last year accused of beating a man he thought had murdered his son.
The surrender was brokered by a person police Chief Jane Castor described as a criminal informant. That person stands to gain a $100,000 reward put together by the FBI, state police, various police funds and CrimeStoppers — agencies that have varying rules on who can collect.
“Those stipulations are now being reviewed to determine if Morris’ associate who helped bring about his arrest will receive any, a portion or all of the reward money,” police said in a statement Sunday. “A decision will be made next week.”
Morris has also been charged with the May 18 murder of Derek Anderson at the Kenneth Court Apartments in east Tampa. In an arrest report in that case released Sunday, police checked “yes” on a box asking whether Morris is a gang member and wrote in the gang: Bloods. MORE FROM THIS SOURCE.
