32-year old Brianna Byrnes says it was her addiction to heroin that nearly killed her. Today, she told the deputy who put her in jail last August, that it was him who saved her, and she wanted to thank him in person for making that life changing arrest.

MCSO K-9 Deputy Justin Albauer says he remembers the stop well. It was after 11pm when he noticed Brianna’s SUV swerving all over the road. After pulling her over, he noticed that Brianna was unusually nervous and may have been hiding something. He was right. She admitted to Deputy Albauer, that she just purchased heroin from a dealer in Riviera Beach, and she had it in the car. She told the deputy that she was an addict, and truly wanted help before her addiction killed her. Deputy Albauer listened to her story, encouraged her to begin that change tonight, then took her to jail. She was charged with possession.

Last week Brianna called the Martin County Sheriff’s Office looking for the deputy she said saved her life. Today, they saw each other for the first time since that arrest. Brianna gave Deputy Albauer a personal letter, then agreed to share her story about the arrest and the fateful night her life changed for the better. After an 18-year addiction, and a night in jail, Brianna immediately went into treatment, is now drug free, and living the life she has always dreamed of.

On behalf of Sheriff William Snyder, Deputy Justin Albauer, and all of us at the Martin County Sheriff’s Office, we congratulate Brianna for her strength and determination, and wish her a lifetime of beautiful memories as she follows her new path.
