Long-Time Drug Dealer Off the Streets of Brooksville

BROOKSVILLE – Residents who live in the area of Twigg Street and Martin Luther King Blvd can breathe a sigh of relief, now that a long-time drug dealer is off the streets and behind bars.

According to officials, around 5:30 a.m., Hernando County Sheriff’s Office Vice and Narcotics Unit executed a search warrant at 806 Twigg Street. The SWAT Team made entry into the residence and encountered 53-year-old Bruce Warren, who was placed into custody without incident. Patrol units secured the scene while a K-9 team assisted in locating narcotics within the residence.

During the search, detectives located a trafficking amount of crack cocaine that had been cooked inside the residence. Detectives also found a felony amount of marijuana that had been packaged for distribution. Methamphetamines and other items of drug paraphernalia, consistent with the sale of illegal narcotics, were also located. Along with finding the illegal drugs, detectives found two firearms and numerous rounds of ammunition. The firearms were a Taurus Judge .410 ga/.45 caliber handgun and a Kel-Tech 5.56mm handgun, which resembled a shortened assault rifle, that had a 45 round extended magazine.

A local church pastor explained that the crowds that would gather around Warren’s property would negatively impact the activities of his church.

Warren was known to conduct his illegal activity in the immediate vicinity of the Mid Florida Community Services Inc., Head Start (a comprehensive child development program designed to help children develop school readiness and social competency), Brooksville Engineering, Science, and Technology Academy (BEST), a bus stop at MLK/Twigg that services several schools, three churches on Twigg Street, and the Hernando County Sheriff’s Office South Brooksville Community Center.

Hernando County Code Enforcement responded and noted several code violations, to include numerous inoperable vehicles, piles of garbage, and standing water, to which they were going to issue citations for said violations.

Warren faces numerous felony charges, including Possession of a Structure for Manufacturing a Controlled Substance, Trafficking Crack Cocaine, Sales and Poss. of Crack Cocaine within 1000 feet of a Church, Poss. Methamphetamine, Poss. Marijuana with intent to Distribute, and several other related charges.

According to officials, Warren already has 13 felony convictions and 11 misdemeanor convictions.

Warren’s bond is set at $71,000 bond.

  • Obviously the war on drugs since the 1980s Reagan administration is a losing battle that is clearly not working. Other countries have legalized many of them with great success. Drug usage goes down, neighborhoods are safer, and addicts and dealers don’t victimize communities.It’s also the forbidden fruit that adds to the problem. Legalize , tax, control and regulate drugs and you will eliminate all of these Breaking Bad wannabes. What are they putting into our water supply and ground water when they dump and clean up their labs? Who knows? Maybe with no big easy profits to make they’ll even go out and get real jobs.

    Thursday, 4 February 2016, 9:49 pm
  • Hell……. the cops don’t even go down Twigg after dark unless they have to…… lol

    Thursday, 4 February 2016, 8:47 pm
  • Lol… I’m sure the residents on Twigg and MLK were “REALLY” concered. Everyone who actually knows and grew up in Brooksville knows you don’t go down Twigg unless you want something. Come on Man!!!!!

    Thursday, 4 February 2016, 8:44 pm
  • Resident of the Sub…you are calling it right. The County, the PD and the Sheriff’s Office have turned a blind eye to this very problem for many years. Tweekers and dealers like bees to a hive, they think they had it contained on Twigg Street and what did they care about the neighbors, NOTHING! Or they would have cleaned it up years ago. Every now and again when the area got a little too rowdy or started to spill into other areas…the Po-Po would busts it up a bit.
    They know everyone down there, who’s car belongs to who, who’s girl is with who, who owns the houses, where they just moved, who’s in jail, who’s not…it’s a joke.
    Some folks have been breaking into a few popular people’s businesses uptown, so something had to give. A warning. A sign, out there for all the hanger’s on to see.
    Let’s see how long it lasts.

  • see mixed feelings about this in the comments section. i think the really sad issue is this guy gets locked up another 100+ are in our community doing the same exact thing and they just get more customers while he is locked up is all. The problem is the addiction. People are always trying to escape reality. If its the guy that pounds down a bottle of scotch every night or the person smoking crack or the individual that gets prescribed xanax/percocet/hydrocodone/valiuum for stress. There are more people using drugs on the daily than not in our society. Such a shame. Well this is our culture. We can fight this war on drugs but stats show we get less than 5 percent. We spend billions that could be spent more wisely. Im sure many will disagree with me but there are much bigger issues at hand when it comes to this matter.

  • Martin Luther King Street formerly known as summit Boulevard has been drugged written for over 30 plus years and everybody has turned a blind eye Brooksville PD wouldn’t even go down there we’re talking back in the day when Israel page an innocent person was gunned down by Brooksville PD. Drugs down there is nothing new same thing goes on in Spring Hill when they close the projects where did they think everyone was going to move to SpringHill there’s just as much white people selling drugs is there is black are you serious and there are good people that live on Twigg Street. And the person that’s making the comment from the sub why don’t you say who you are why are you in fear of your life please its not that important drugs are everywhere if you choose to do you choose to do . They need to be cracking down on Spring Hill as well as they do Brooksville and make the penalties for dope dealing a little harsher and then maybe they won’t be doing it get a job find a trade other than cooking crack and that goes for all races and I used to live down there at least 30 years ago and nothing has changed nothing

  • Blacks have no choice but to sell drugs because of white people!!!??? Are you kidding me. The picture includes top shelf booze tobacco. White mans world? That’s funny when there are black only scholarships for college, tax breaks for minority owned businesses, and some still would rather sell crack! Learn some accountability for your actions. As long as you believe in an oppressor you will be oppressed by your beliefs.

  • God is good
    Everyone have a bless Thursday. For God love us all no matter how we mess up. He forgive us but when you make bad choices theses are the results. I grew up in this area and it has been like this for years people gathering to have a good time but not as bad like today with this new generation. I have know Bruce for years he is not a bad person he just like to have fun but chose to do it in the wrong way as well as selling drugs. He has lived on Twigg since Hell the 80’s before churches was on the street.
    Even thou Bruce went to jail this is not going to stop Twigg. Bruce sold drugs but he did it out of his resident which was wrong. He did not sell drugs around no Churches. The churches are located on Twigg as well as Bruce resident. Bruce resides at the top of the road and the churches at the bottom. The other dealers who do not stay on Twigg Street or in the area are the ones selling drugs up and down Twigg Street chasing cars down by the churches. I grew up in this area and it has been like this for years ,people gathering to have a good time but not as bad like today with this new generation.
    Yes he sold drug, yes he played his music loud but guess what he is not the only one who has went down for some stuff like this. He and many more messed up thou life but they are still God’s child and God will do the punishment not man.
    I pray for all of us but if we make bad decisions we got to look for the results that follows them.

  • Man on man. Ppl saying they cant get jobs so they have to sell drugs to support their family??? There are jobs every where. Dont be picky. But the number one priority for your family especially with children involved. As I take the word family as there are kids. To bring children up around drugs WRONG. What are you teaching them? Do these ppl care about their children? Seriously bc if your doing drugs or selling drugs to raise your family. YOU are taking risk of having your family torn apart. Do material things and drugs mean more to the kids. I know about drugs and addiction all to well bc my children’s father became the worse addict and seller. I left him many years ago. Why bc my kids meant more to me than what his life style was becoming and he became abusive. Bills didnt get paid bc he was an addict. I get it is a disease and the only way to change your lifestyle is to say your done with the sh!t and get help. NA does wonders. Ive been a single mother all 16 yrs with 3 kids that 2 have serious medical issues. One special needs it wasnt easy for me to keep a job with them being so sick. I had no one to depend on. Now im disabled bc someone decided to get behind a wheel that definitely didnt need to be clearly that has cost me my job my life being disabled with only disability as my income no child support and I get less than 9k a YEAR. I have to make it work as im still trying 5 yrs later to get better bc I miss working I couldn’t finish medical school. I was told hey just start selling. I couldn’t believe someone suggested that to me. Ain’t one pill out there I would risk having my babies taken from me. Kids are dying KIDS middle school high school dying from drug overdose. They get from someone they dont know. Kids teenagers have peer pressure and hang out with the wrong friends. Get offered drugs everyday. Is it really worth it to be selling to all these ppl you know are going to sell to other ppl and it gets in the hands of children and your own friends. That get so high they pop another pill or smoke some more crack or shoot up too much heroin. Life is not worth it. Parents showing up with kids on their hips to pick up drugs. If that is the lifestyle you want then at least have some brains to give that child to someone else to raise. It is a war and a quick way to make cash but also a quick way for a death sentence 6 feet under or in prison. Yes it is a disease being an addict I know this bc I’ve lived it for many years trying to get many ppl help for their addiction bc I do care about ppl strangers included of all color we all bleed the same. Put on a nice outfit and go get a job and find it in your heart to stop the madness. Im 2014 there were over 40,000 deaths and about 85,000 over doses. I pray no kids were in this house bc that is asking for a death sentence for a child. Addicts with children get so messed up they drop their pills all kinds of drugs bc they are so high. Its on the floor in the living room left in the bathroom. And there are babies crawling all over the floors sticking everything in their mouths. I chose to finally walk away when I got smart and realized I couldn’t change anyone especially the father of my kids. I was much younger to but I did all I could and be a single mom with no help from him. But this kind of guy they got off the street was a damn good thing and with all that money and drugs he wasnt doing it for his family he was feeding the addicts. That man dont care about you he cares about your money. I hope he stays in this time. But I also know how the system works my ex husband was facing many of the same charges all felonies and walked out scott free 2 weeks later. How I dont know. I can say though. After doing drugs for almost 20 years. He got clean for the 10th time. But this time its been for 5 yrs. All through NA. I never knew or thought it would happen. But he also ruined his relationship for his kids that are all much older now with 5 kids total and not one of those kids wants anything to do with him. Bc ppl dont realize what it does to the kids. Just bc they are babies or toddlers when you if you smarten up and do whats right it will be to late for most of them and it doesnt just effect the addict but it effects the kids the most thst they werent more important than the drug. I pray everyday the streets get cleaned up and ppl open up their eyes its a death sentence they will face at some point in their life. That will effect many ppl. But there are jobs all over the place and there are also agency’s that will help you get a job no matter what race you are. Ib hope these people get help and pray for them all the time. Bc I look into my kids eyes everyday and see the pain they have endured over the years having many of their family members having an addiction problem. But you have to want it. But dont put kids and your family at risk bc of your choices. If I can manage on my pathetic income and its not easy at all with teenagers plus with medical problems for 3 out of 4 of us. You can to and you have to work for it. Stepping down off my soap box. Its rear I do a lot of commenting. But when its something I know the lifestyle and been around it and lived with it for over 20 yrs of my life. I have to say something. It may help one person or no one. But there is help out there you just have to want it. But dont put your kids at risk and bring them up around that shit. I would hope you would want a better life for them and definitely don’t want them to become addicts themselves. They DESERVE a chance.
    It has to start somewhere.

  • Dear Judge: you have undoubtedly read the aforementioned opinions, NOW DO YOUR JOB and put this piece of crap away for a long time, he is a cancer to society and should just be shot if you can pull that off.

    Thursday, 4 February 2016, 4:47 am
  • RESIDENT OF THE SUB…You know too much about Twigg. I’m done with it but I wiil say …life is about choices so you have to live with the consequences. Y’all can keep talking about BROOKSVILLE but SPRING HILL is infested with all types of drugs.

    Thursday, 4 February 2016, 2:03 am
  • @War on Drugs….That was so very well said…..Kudos to you!

    @Resident of the Sub…You seem to be ‘stuck’ on their music
    instead of the DRUG DEALING, which would be the most
    IMPORTANT ISSUE, in my opinion!

    Thursday, 4 February 2016, 1:00 am
  • I dont care what race you are. If your willing to work hard and put yourself out there you can get a job. Doing things illegal like selling drugs will get you in jail just like this gentlemen. You make the bed your in.

    Thursday, 4 February 2016, 12:15 am
    • We ALL have our faults. And Bruce is no exception to the rule. But when did he ask these people to hang out on Twigg Street. Sell drugs? Thump the music? Etc. We are responible for our own actions. Good or Bad. Bruce Warren may be part of the this dilemma. Only because he lives on Twigg Street. But Twigg Street is still Twigg Street. Always have and always will be. Stop blaming. And start helping

      Thursday, 27 April 2017, 8:59 pm
  • You are so wrong. I have not hidden in my house like most of the Sub residents. I have worked hard to help the less fortunate, try to get HCSO to do something and pick up the mess left by stoned people partying on or around Twigg. It has been very frustrating and I had pretty much reached the give up point and become another of the residents hiding out. I understand and have empathy for those with the disease of addiction, but you can’t help them until they want it. Bruce Warren and his buddies have NO RIGHT to constantly pound the neighborhood with 2,000 watt car stereos thumping gangsta hip hop. The foul language and hateful rhetoric of that “music” should be confined to Mr. Warren’s house. Certainly exposing the kids to it as they get off the school bus is not helping the People break the cycle. There is no escape as it is so loud it penetrates through cement block walls. The traffic down Twigg during dealing times would be 15-20 cars an hour. It was not unusual to be awakened in the middle of the night by some stoned people wandering down MLK from Twigg just hollering at each other over nonsense. How is it OK to fire up subwoofers at 3AM and knock everyone out of bed? To paint this thug as a victim is ridiculous. Don’t do the crime if you can’t do the time. He made his choice, no one pushe him there. No I don’t hate Mr. Warren, just the stupid stuff he does to let everyone know it is His Hood and he rules. And no, like most of the folk who live in the neighborhood I’ve never bought or sold drugs and avoided Twigg Street if at all possible. The only people who can help the People are the People themselves and it starts by saying NO to folks like Bruce Warren who want to drag everyone else down into the mire with him.

  • @lendahand are you being serious with this comment? I ask this because if you are you just set back a lot of people 100 years. I know plenty of people of all races and ethnicities that are hard working people and pushed for better things in life by going to school or in the military and I assure you 100% that these people were treated no differently than “The white man”! Its called hard work and dedication, not hold your hand out and wait to have it handed to you! Is someone holding a gun to your head and making you stay in a bad situation? No, you are a human with free will yes free stop making excuses because you may not be as good or better than the next person. Do something about it to better yourself. Stop blaming others!

    Wednesday, 3 February 2016, 11:43 pm
  • I can not believe you would use the fact that he needs to sell drugs because he is a person of color. It is just an excuse. The president of our Country is a black man! A man whom I voted for. I have many black friends who have great paying jobs and work hard because they chose to be productive, good, hard working citizens. I have not an ounce of prejudice blood in my body. We are all equals. I myself have a bi-racial grandson and let me tell you I will not tolerate prejudice remarks towards him. . There are many white drug dealers as well whom deserve to be and are being prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law as well for drug dealing. This stigma is made by racial people and racial people only….. from both races! The opportunities in this country to make an HONEST LIVING are there for everyone. To destroy other families to feed your own family is evil no matter what your race! I say go get financial aid, get an education and go get a real job and struggle to get there just like the rest of us had to do! There is no excuse anymore! Life is about choices and it is each Infividual’s responsibility to make those choices. It is we the people whom are creating the racial issues we have today! Dealing drugs is a crime no matter your race because drugs kill!!!!!

    Wednesday, 3 February 2016, 11:09 pm
  • Right is right & wrong is wrong! Selling drugs is wrong no matter how you look at it!! I know many convicted felons (black & white) who have good jobs & don’t use their past as an excuse to be a thug! Everybody has a choice in their life on how they want to live. Don’t blame others because that person didn’t want to change! He knew what the consequences were!!

  • So Tom the sheriff use assault rifles they have the same kind of weapons the news people gave it that word my AR 15 and AK47 they are tacatial rifles

    Wednesday, 3 February 2016, 10:50 pm
  • Another one bites the dust! I believe the HCSO is doing a great job sweeping up the drug dealers. These are the true evil doers that sell drugs to our youth! People critisize our law enforcement but, they too have strict rules they have to abide by and sometimes long investigations before they can legally make an arrest. They can’t just go raid a home on hearsay they need that key element “Probable Cause” The sad fact is while they are investigating one case another one is in the works. We are all at a “War with Drugs”. Hard war to win!!!! Praying we make Hernando county a safer place to live.

    Wednesday, 3 February 2016, 10:44 pm
  • Resident of the sub I’m quite sure u have relatives that have made bad choices have no choice but to sell drugs to make a living to feed their self or family or perhaps you probably sell smoke yourself it only take one felony one mistake may be the courts should be more helpful along with hcso an give jobs away to stop drugs in any community instead of hiding our PEOPLE away for making a living …we all know its a white man’s world I’m not racist at all its true Caucasian get rubbed on the back an African-American get hidden in the system ijs resident of the sub won’t you lend a helping hand to the list people stop downing people because some people have no choice .. Or need a PUSH you know things have changed it ain’t easy for us …its hard an you know it

  • “13 felony convictions and 11 misdemeanor convictions.”???
    And still running free in our county???
    Although HCSO has him off the streets, for now, how long before
    he will bond out to start dealing drugs all over again???

    Our law makers need to make some major changes in our laws.
    It is up to the citizens to get off their ***** to vote.
    If you can’t or won’t stand in lines to vote, then use the option
    of an absentee ballot to vote!

    Why don’t we have the “three strikes” law in Florida????

    @Resident of the Sub…
    “ruled by drug dealers and their clientele over the last 2.5 years”
    I don’t know how long you have lived in that area…BUT…
    This has been going on in that area for the last THIRTY years!

  • Bond set at $71K, COMICAL!
    Model citizen Warren will be out on the street within 24 hours as he makes that bond money in a week. If he comes up short on the bail money his suppliers will pop for the dough to get their boy back into the action.

  • It is about time HCSO!!! The residents of my neighborhood have been forced to deal with the noise (thumping car stereos blasting hip hop), traffic, stoned people and crimes associated with dealers/addicts (my house was burgalarized, shootings, fugitive chases) all basically coming from the Twigg Street connection for far too long. I learned about “Bruce the Drug Dealer” years ago well before I knew his real name was Bruce Warren. The good folk, the law abiding taxpayers that live in what some jerks call the “Brooksville ghetto” look at Twigg St as the cancer in our neighborhood and it seemed law enforcement turned a blind eye to it. When I would ask HCSO people (and I asked many) about our neighborhood being ruled by drug dealers and their clientele over the last 2.5 years their answer was always “That’s the way it has always been down there”. Very helpful! Anyways, finally turning the “hood” back into a neighborhood has made a major step in the right direction. Thank you HCSO for making it happen. Keep up the pressure…Please! Quite a few people gathered on Twigg late this afternoon. I suspect there are some upset regular clients and party goers. They do not represent our neighborhood and the vast majority don’t even live there let alone pay the property taxes. Clean up Twigg once and for all and the rest will follow. A good start would be not letting people park and party on county property on both sides of MLK at Twigg. Just sayin’…
