In April of 2011 Officer Perez responded to a theft at the North Community Park concession stand. While on scene, noting the presence of a surveillance camera pointing towards the entrance of the concession stand, he was able to obtain still photos of the suspects. At the start of his next shift, Officer Perez took the initiative to bring the photos to the School Resources Officer at Stoneman Douglas High School. The officer was immediately able to identify the suspects in question. Officer Perez was then able to pass the information on to Detectives who subsequently made contact with the suspects garnering a full confession of the crime.
