Sergeant Brian ArchambaultWhile working an aircraft detail in Pasco County, Land-O-Lakes District Sergeant Brian Archambault was approached by an employee of Tampa Bay’s Brighthouse Networks who advised him that three of his employees were following the vehicle of a suspect who had just stolen some company equipment.

Sgt. Archambault quickly responded to the area and observed the suspect’s vehicle travel past him on US 19. Sgt. Archambault was able to quickly stop the vehicle and the suspect was taken into custody. As a result of his location and timing, a trooper was able to stop a thief and recover thousands of dollars worth of cable and high speed internet equipment.
