HALEYVILLE - Being frugal with funds has meant two new vehicles for the Winston County Sheriff’s Office, a purchase praised by the Winston County Commission showing the partnership they have with the sheriff’s office.
The two new vehicles, purchased at $66,000 without the assistance of any grants, are two 2018 model Ford Explorers that will replace two 2014 Tahoes, according to sheriff’s office.
The 2018 models are being given to sheriff’s deputies B.J. Simmons and Josh Silas, while the 2014 models will now be used by investigators Brad Curtis and Caleb Snoddy.
The reason the newer model vehicles are being given to the deputies are the excessive road miles deputies put on vehicles during their calls, according to Sheriff Tommy Moore.
