Comanche County deputies add a new vehicle to their arsenal

Posted: Updated:

COMACNHE COUNTY, Okla._Comanche County Sheriff Kenny Stradley is using the sheriff's department's portion of the county tax to upgrade his vehicle fleet.

Monday, the sheriff showed county commissioners the MRAP the department bought. The MRAP is a military vehicle that costs $600,000 but the department is getting it for only $2,500. The sheriff credits military downsizing for the bargain.

An added cost is how they will get the 28 ton vehicle to Comanche County from an area right outside of Houston.
