Washington County To Use Seized Drug Money For Vehicles

HAGERSTOWN, Md. (AP) — The Washington County Board of Commissioners has voted to allow the Narcotics Task Force to buy two replacement vehicles and electronic fingerprinting equipment with more $300,000 it seized last year.

The Herald-Mail of Hagerstown reports that the unanimous vote this month allowed the task force to transfer the money to an account so it can be spent.

About $280,000 of the money was seized in August during a raid at a house in Hagerstown, where 93 pounds of marijuana and the money were found.
