Lt. Kenneth Boatright
Troop B - Lake City

Congratulations to Lt. Kenneth Boatright for being selected as the Florida Highway Patrol Trooper of the Month for May 2008, for his diligent efforts in apprehending an armed robber during a traffic stop.

On May 20, 2008, Lt. Boatright responded to a BOLO for an armed suspect who had committed a home invasion and grand theft in the Zephyrhills area as well as armed robbery in Marion and Alachua counties. Upon locating the suspect, Lt. Boatright conducted a traffic stop. He then held the suspect at gun point until back up arrived. He arrested the suspect who was armed with a .25 caliber pistol, which he had removed from the suspect’s front pocket. Thanks to Lt. Boatright’s quick police work, the suspect was charged with 3 counts of Armed Robbery, Carrying a Concealed Firearm, Grant Theft, DUI, DWLSR – Habitual Offender, Possession of Marijuana, and Possession of Drug Paraphernalia.

Lt. Boatright acted in the highest tradition of the Florida Highway Patrol, and is commended for his prudent actions and congratulated for being selected as the Florida Highway Patrol Trooper of the Month for May 2008.
