When hiring a private detective, you want to hire the best. There are plenty of private detective agencies out there, and all are not created equal.

In 2009, Seabolt led the state in felony-level arrests. Seabolt was involved in hundreds of drug busts during his time on the OSHP, and countless hours in court testimonies.
