Officer Anderson responds to a call of a disturbance involving a male suspect running down the street with a firearm. After making contact with the suspect, he’s clearly out of breath and claiming he’s  been chasing after a couple guys who were trying to break into his house and install fiber optic wires. Officer Anderson asks him a few more questions and believes he may be under the influence of narcotics. Eventually, the suspect admits he recently took what he believed was bath salts that his son gave to him. He then goes on to point out that there were more fiber optic wires right by his feet. After conducting a search of suspect,  multiple pieces of tin foil containing bath salts were found on his person. The suspect was arrested for possessing a controlled substance as well as paraphernalia.

Why Law EnforcementFriend in Houston Texas who was a Constable encouraged me to pursue the career.
First ArrestAs a Cadet we responded to a large fight at a dance. The crowd turned on the Officer I was riding with so I used my side handle baton to strike several people trying to get the Officer. The Officer was impressed enough of my instinct with no experience as a LEO that he asked the Chief to hire me.
Best part of the jobHave always loved the hunt. Looking for people up to no good then catching the suspect in the act is what has always made patrol so intreging.
HobbiesHunt, fish, softball, shoot, hike, ski , watching the St. Louis Rams!
