TWO KNOWN ARMED ROBBERY SUSPECTS SOUGHT  Sought 

Polk County Sheriff's Robbery detectives are seeking the public's help in locating Gabrielle "Gabe" Drayton and his younger brother, Frankie Webster, who both have Polk County warrants for their arrests for Armed Robbery.

Around 9:30 a.m. on Monday, February 27, 2012, Drayton and Webster robbed two men of their money and personal belongings at gunpoint near James and Dairy Roads in Auburndale after arranging a meeting with the men to buy marijuana from them. Drayton and Webster then forced the men to drive them to one of the victim's houses to get more money and marijuana from them. When they arrived at the house, on 22nd Street NW in Winter Haven, one of the victims fled and Drayton fired his gun at him. The victim was not injured and was able to flee the scene. The other victim was held down at gunpoint by Webster.

Both Drayton and Webster then forced the victim at gunpoint to drive to the Walmart store located on Berkley Road in Auburndale, where they kicked the victim out of the car and fled. The car was later recovered. 

Gabrielle "Gabe" Drayton, DOB 11/14/1993, of 414 Senate Street in Auburndale, is described as a black male, 5'7" tall, 180 lbs.; Frankie Lee Webster, DOB 3/29/1997, of the same address, is described as a black male, 5'6" tall, 160 lbs. Both suspects have warrants for their arrests for Armed Robbery, Attempted Armed Robbery, Carjacking, Kidnapping, and Felony Attempted Murder. They are to be considered ARMED AND DANGEROUS.

If you have any information about this incident or know the whereabouts of Drayton or Webster, you are urged to contact the Polk County Sheriff's Robbery Unit at 863.298.6379.
