Hwy 82 Witchita Falls,TX…WTF? This is a Sheriff in a light armored tank with a gun turret pulling people over for speeding. Flashing red/blue lights and all. I would not have believed it if I hadn’t seen it with my own eyes. We are so screwed! — with Marianne Stebbins, witchita Falls, Freddy Crisp III, Erik Daniel Blair and Pamm Adams Skogen.
The Etowah County Sheriffs Office has acquired an armored vehicle that will be assigned to the Joint Special Operations Group for use in SWAT calls. The military-surplus vehicle is worth about $600,000 but it was acquired at no cost to the county. The only expense was the cost for transport to Etowah County from 29 Palms Marine base in California. It arrived in Etowah County on Tuesday and was driven down Alabama Highway 77 to the Etowah County Drug Enforcement Unit office where it will be stored.
