Trooper Paul Tompkins
Trooper Paul Tompkins

Trooper Paul Tompkins, Troop G - Jacksonville, while working a highway construction hireback detail, observed a vehicle traveling 85 miles per hour in a posted 55 mile per hour zone. As Trooper Tompkins was talking to the driver he observed the front of a semi-automatic rifle between the seats. A further search revealed another semi-automatic rifle. Trooper Tompkins determined that the serial numbers of both rifles had been altered and the vehicle’s tag was stolen. The subject was arrested and booked into the Duval County jail for possession of altered firearms and possession of a stolen tag. If Trooper Tompkins had not been working overtime, this criminal may not have been caught!
