Sugar Gives Sheriff Trucks

United States Sugar Corporation Donates Trucks To HCSO

CLEWISTON, FL. -- United States Sugar Corporation recently donated three 4-wheel drive pickup trucks to be used by the Hendry County Sheriff's Office Auxiliary Deputy Agricultural Crime Unit.

According to Sheriff Ronnie Lee, the Agricultural Crime Unit is under the supervision of the Criminal Investigations Division and concentrates on a wide variety of criminal activities relating to the Agricultural Community. These vehicles will enable the Auxiliary Deputies to help patrol the vast agricultural properties in Hendry County as well as rural communities.

No word on what will become of the numerous other old trucks in the Sheriff's parking lot "donated" to the Sheriff's department, nor how much it may cost taxpayers to keep these trucks operational.
