While in Apalachicola, Officer Bunker was approached by an individual with information in reference to a boat coming in with undersized oysters. Bunker investigated the information and discovered activity associated with the intelligence. Due to his efforts, he was able to make a possession of undersized oyster case.

Later in the week, Bunker was patrolling the Bald Point area when he heard gunfire coming from a private lease and saw a vehicle parked on the shoulder of the road. Bunker waited for the hunter to come out of the woods.

Upon encountering the hunter, Bunker noticed multiple indicators of alcohol impairment. He completed his investigation and the subject was arrested for use of a firearm while impaired by alcohol as well as possession of less than 20 grams of marijuana. Due to Bunker’s efforts, this individual was kept off of the highway where he would have been a risk to public safety.
