Liberty police purchase new vehicles with forfeited money

Posted: Updated:

LIBERTY TWP., Ohio - Liberty police are putting money seized during drug busts back to use for the department by purchasing two new police cruisers.

The department has two brand new, radar and high definition camera equipped 2014 Ford Explorers set to hit the road as a result of the amount of drugs and money the department has pulled off of the street.

Police Chief Richard Tisone was happy with the efforts of his officers and said, "Obviously we're pleased about it because we're making these traffic stops. We're getting the drugs off of the streets, putting these individuals in jail, and as a result of that, we're able to purchase new equipment to continue that enforcement of drugs and traffic here in Liberty."

Each vehicle cost just over $22,000 and was purchased through the an in-state purchasing program.
