Pinellas County, Florida is part of the metropolitan area that includes Tampa, St. Petersburg and Clearwater. As a matter of fact, until 1912, the area was known as West Hillsborough, as it was part of Hillsborough County at the time. Pinellas is among the most populated counties in the state. The largest city in the county is St. Petersburg, which also takes the prize for the highest crime rate. In 2017, there were more than 36,000 arrests in Pinellas County.
Pinellas holds a great deal of history within its boundaries, especially in Bayview, which was used as a shipping port for cattle in the early to mid 1800s. At that time, Bayview was a small settlement inhabited by Seminole Indians, but also by early American settlers. Needless to say, the combination of the two resulted in destruction and violence.
By 1979, a local newspaper published an article informing the Bayview community about some of the local residents who were involved in a drug operation. Local officials discovered 10 tons of marijuana was shipped to the port and then loaded onto several smaller boats for distribution and selling. The bust led to twenty-five arrests in Bayview, but only two were charged. All were local residents.
