N.C. County Gets Patrol Cars It Didn’t Order

January 30, 2013  | 

The Scotland County (N.C.) Sheriff's Office received eight brand new, decal-laden patrol vehicles from a local Ford dealership earlier this month—but officials are saying they never purchased the vehicles, reports the Laurinburg Exchange.

The County Board of Commissioners has yet to vote on the purchase of seven vehicles (rather than eight). The cars came equipped with cameras and are financed at a much higher rate than the city thinks it can get, the news source stated. Officials will attempt to negotiate with the dealership for the vehicles.
