Trooper Johnson
Trooper Adam Johnson

Trooper Adam Johnson was patrolling the Florida Turnpike in the Fort Pierce area when he noticed the driver of a tractor trailer transporting two pieces of heavy construction equipment. Seeing that the trailer had a flat tire and an unassigned tag, Trooper Johnson stopped the driver to investigate. He found out that the driver and his passenger were transporting a 2007 Caterpillar bull dozer valued at $140,000 and a 2007 Caterpillar front end loader valued at $78,000. Unfortunately, neither pieces of equipment belonged to the driver or the passenger. In fact, both items were confirmed stolen in Orlando two days earlier. The driver and passenger were arrested and charged with Grand Theft and Dealing in Stolen Property. Good job Trooper Johnson!
