Original story:

Police have arrested a former firefighter from Hendersonville in connection to a burglary Monday morning of a Nashville fire station.

According to media releases from police, authorities were looking Randall Soulliere, 43, after a burglary had been reported at Nashville Fire Department Station 12 on 101 Polk Avenue.

Fire station employees were returning to the fire hall after 3 a.m. when they saw Soullieres silver Dodge Caliber parked outside. They alerted Fire Captain Keith Kruse who was inside the station.  Kruse located Soulliere near an office door holding a 55-inch TV. Soulliere is reported to have dropped the TV and fled with a second suspect in his car, which still displayed firefighter tags. 

Soulliere was arrested Feb. 12 by Nashville detectives who were conducting a prostitution sting. According to a press release, Soulliere was in possession of cocaine in a school zone. He was scheduled to appear in court at 1 p.m. Monday but did not show up. He resigned from the fire department at a disciplinary hearing on March 4.
