Federal authorities reclaim sheriff's armored vehicles
from Midland Reporter-Telegram
Federal authorities recently took two longtime possessions of the Midland County Sheriff's Office's — "Bubba" and "Patsy," two of the department's three military-style armored vehicles. Earlier this year, President Barack Obama issued an executive order that reversed the federal 1033 program, which allocated surplus military gear to local law enforcement agencies. The MCSO had been in possession of the two armored personnel carriers since the program’s inception in 1997. The two 13-ton vehicles recently were loaded up and hauled away.
