Money seized from drug crimes buys new Glocks for sheriff's deputies
The Greene County Sheriff's Department is equipped with new handguns and they have locals who've been arrested for drug crimes to thank.
Greene County Sheriff David Carter said money seized through drug crimes helped fund the purchase of 25 new Glocks for the department.
Carter said without help from the Drug Task Force, this would have been an expensive buy for the department.
"It would have been probably $10,000 at least that much," Carter said. "You've got to have the holsters and the mag pouches. It's not just the guns, it's the rest of the equipment that goes with it."

Sheriff's deputies tested with the handguns last week. Carter said the guns are easier to carry and replace the .45 caliber Glocks deputies used to carry.
Carter said the next purchase they're looking to make is bullet proof vests.
