NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

A former Nashville firefighter is suspected in a burglary Monday morning at a fire hall near Murfreesboro Pike and is also accused of failing to appear in court on a drug charge.

A warrant was issued for 43-year-old Randall Soulliere after he allegedly walked through an unlocked back door at Fire Station 12 around 3 a.m. and tried to take a 55" flat-screen TV while crews were out on a call.

When crews returned, they saw the man trying to get away with the TV and called 911.

Police say the man then dropped the TV and jumped into a silver Dodge Caliber to get away.

Soulliere was arrested later Monday in Hendersonville and transported to Nashville.

Soulliere resigned from the fire department last week, police said, after a disciplinary hearing that resulted from an arrest on possession of cocaine in a drug-free zone during a prostitution sting.

He was due to appear in court Monday afternoon on that drug charge but did now show up, police said.
