Henderson County Sheriff's Office to add armored vehicle
from The Monitor
The Henderson County, Texas, Sheriff's Office soon will have quick access to its own armored vehicle. County Commissioners approved the purchase of a BearCat, the same kind of vehicle borrowed from the Tyler Police Department in 2010. The BearCat served Athens well when it was used to confront survivalist Howard Todd Granger in a four-hour police standoff, in October 2010. Granger fired about 100 rounds from an AK-47 at the armored vehicle before getting taken down by a well-aimed sniper round. Not a single round fired at the SWAT team penetrated the vehicle, including the windows.
