Police Department in Small City in OK Gets Armored Vehicle

The police department in Guthrie, Oklahoma, recently purchased an armored vehicle through a military surplus program.

The Mine-Resistant Ambush Protected vehicle (MRAP), which was once used in the Middle East, was purchased with $2,000 in stolen seized drug money (civil asset forfeiture, anyone?).

Some might think that’s a pretty good deal – the military pays around $730,000 for each MRAP.
Police Chief Damon Devereaux is pretty excited about the department’s new toy.
