Officers surprise woman with Down syndrome on birthday


ST. JOHNS COUNTY, Fla. – A 20-year-old woman with Down syndrome received a special gift on her birthday last weekend thanks to two local law enforcement agencies.

Before Gabby's birthday, her mother, Kerry, contacted the St. Johns County Sheriff's Office to ask for cards for her daughter who loves law enforcement. 

But Gabby didn't just get a card in the mail.

Instead, SJCSO Sgt. Jim Priester and his older brother, Cpl. Wade Priester with the Gainesville Police Department, surprised Gabby on Sunday with gifts. 

Gabby loved getting a visit from the fourth-generation law enforcement brothers and posing for photos with them, SJCSO posted Monday on Facebook

Both SJCSO and GPD wish Gabby a happy birthday!
