HILLSBOROUGH (970 WFLA) – Hillsborough deputies say they have made an arrest in connection to a 2007 murder case.

Deputies say 28-year-old Rick Joseph, a gang member wanted on a murder charge from a warrant issued in May 2007, has been arrested and brought back to Hillsborough County.

Detectives used social media, public and investigative databases and old fashioned police work to construct a possible location - a six block radius in Brooklyn, N.Y. - where the fugitive and his associates could be.

Within a week, officials say an arrest was made.
