Sergeant Morris R. Dunn, Trooper James R. Taylor, Jr., and Trooper Harry K. Weaver, Jr. have been selected as recipients of the Florida Highway Patrol Trooper of the Month award for May 2000, based on their actions during an incident involving an abduction and sexual assault.

On Tuesday May 16, 2000, Sergeant Dunn responded to a disabled vehicle and encountered a youth. The youth asked Sergeant Dunn if he was going to be incarcerated. This being an odd question, Sergeant Dunn inquired further and discovered that the young man had been abducted and sexually assaulted.

Sergeant Dunn requested assistance from Trooper Taylor who located the perpetrator and took him into an investigative detention. Trooper Weaver responded to the scene for assistance. After transporting the youth and the suspect to Troop B Headquarters in Lake City, a confession was obtained and multiple felony charges were filed.

These men are to be commended for their professionalism. Their actions were consistent with the highest standards of law enforcement.

Sergeant Dunn is a 27-year veteran of the Florida Highway Patrol assigned to Troop B, Lake City; Trooper Taylor is a 6-year veteran, also assigned to Troop B, Lake City; and Trooper Weaver is a 9-year veteran of the FHP assigned to Troop B, Jasper.
