Trooper Catches Suspect Attempting to Flee the State

While on patrol Dec. 12, 2011, Trooper Maurice Vilsaint observed a driver who was not wearing a safety belt. The driver was acting suspiciously and attempted to change lanes to move away from the trooper. Vilsaint initiated a traffic stop after he ran the license plate of the vehicle, and it came back assigned to a different vehicle. The driver was unable to provide any of the required documentation for the vehicle or his driver license. Upon running the driver’s name and date of birth, Vilsaint determined the driver had active warrants against him. After confirming all the warrants, Vilsaint arrested the driver. As part of the follow-up investigation, Vilsaint determined that the driver was attempting to flee the state.

Congratulations to Trooper Maurice Vilsaint for being selected as the Florida Highway Patrol Trooper of the Month for December 2011.
