Congratulations to Officer Carlos Borrero, who has been voted Sworn Employee of the Month for his remarkable work in reuniting a woman with not only her stolen car, but her 11-year-old Chihuahua that was inside of it.
On Aug. 19, officers responded to a 911 call from a woman who went inside a convenience store, leaving her dog inside the car with the engine on. While she was inside the store, someone stole her car and the dog, leaving her devastated.
About 30 minutes later, Officer Borrero saw the stolen car traveling north on Seacrest Boulevard. The driver pulled into a driveway and two men bailed from the car. They were taken into custody after a brief foot pursuit.
Officer Borrero questioned them about the dog, and they ultimately revealed that they abandoned it just outside of the city limits. Officers responded to the location and immediately found the dog wandering around and unharmed.
Officer Borrero reunited the dog with his human, returned her stolen car and sent two criminals to jail.
For serving the community with professionalism, respect, integrity, dedication and excellence, Officer Borrero is the Sworn Employee of the Month.
