Inside HCSO – Season 8 Episode 12


(upbeat music) Hello and welcome. I’m Detective Melissa Brunelle
and this is Inside HCSO. Let’s take a look. Hundreds of runners and walkers spent a sun soaked
weekend morning making our annual Ranch Run
another resounding success. Participants for the event, with its unique superhero theme, gathered at Temple
Terrace Elementary School for the charity races. The beneficiary was the
Florida Sheriffs Youth Ranches, which provides residential
and support programs for at risk youth
around the state. Sheriff Chad Chronister
was more than happy to present the organization
with a check for $20,000. Check out this store video
that shows a Walmart shopper, well, shopping for
something free. This thief enters the front door and makes a bee line
for the garden shop. He walks around, checking
out a barbecue grill. When he sees that no
employees are around, he makes his selection, a red and white
Excursion mountain bike, and sure enough, he puts
the bike to the test, riding it out of the garden
shop and into the parking lot. He cruises to his vehicle, loads in the bike,
and drives away. We identified the
suspect and sent the case to the state attorney’s
office for prosecution. Deputies carry lifesaving
gear in their patrol cars and are trained to use it. This incident hammers
home the reason why. We got several 911 calls
about an elderly man who had collapsed, unconscious, at Landmark Baptist
Church in Seffner. Deputy Casey Shaw arrived and,
with church members helping, began chest compressions. Master Deputy Benjamin
Thompson came in with a portable automated
external defibrillator, which provides an
electrical pulse to restore heart rhythm, and Deputy Matthew
Reynall supplied oxygen The man regained consciousness on the way to the
hospital with paramedics. He is recuperating at
home and doing well. Outstanding effort,
deputies and church members. A man out for a morning
jog escaped injury after a harrowing robbery, and the GPS fitness tracker
on his stolen iPhone helped us nail the two suspects. The crime occurred
in the parking lot of the Hillsborough Community
College’s Brandon Campus. Two men, one carrying a machete, robbed the victim of his
cell phone and Apple watch. Deputies converged on the scene, and Master Deputy Jimmy
Dixon and his dog, Gus, tracked the thieves to
a nearby trailer park. We arrested the pair and
recovered the stolen property. The bonus? The phone’s fitness app
captured an electronic path from the robbery
straight to the suspects. Well, that will do
it for this episode. We are already working
on another Inside HCSO, so be sure to check back, and don’t forget to like
us, follow us, and subscribe so that you never miss
a beat about team HCSO. Until next time, take
care and be safe. (upbeat music)
