CORPUS CHRISTI - A Corpus Christi firefighter was recognized for his actions to prevent a carjacking that also led to the arrest of a suspect wanted for another crime.
The fire department presented Jon Dodge with a commendation for going above and beyond the call of duty.
Back on September 30, Dodge was off duty when he noticed a woman trying to steal a car at a Southside convenience store. Dodge stopped the theft and then held the female suspect until police officers arrived.
The woman also confessed to an aggravated robbery.
Our congratulations to Mr. Dodge for a job well done.
