FHP Auxiliary Captain Osborn
FHP Auxiliary Captain H. Wade Osborn

Auxiliary Captain H. Wade Osborn, from Troop F, was on Limited Scope Patrol in Sarasota County, when he came upon a disabled vehicle on the side of Interstate 75. After stopping to assist the stranded motorist, Auxiliary Captain Osborn discovered that the driver had an outstanding felony arrest warrant for aggravated burglary.

Auxiliary Captain Osborn approached the stranded driver who was attempting to change a flat tire on his vehicle. As the two spoke, Osborn noticed that the individual appeared very nervous. Concerned about the encounter, Auxiliary Captain Osborn ran a check on the vehicle's plate. The tag attached did not match. A subsequent check on the vehicle's registered owner revealed an active felony warrant for aggravated burglary out of Coffee County, Alabama. The suspect was arrested without incident and transported to South County jail in Venice, Florida, where he is awaiting extradition to Alabama.
