Easthampton Drug Forfeiture Money Buys ATV

The Easthampton Police Department has used drug forfeiture money to buy an all-terrain mini-cruiser.  Chief Bruce McMahon says the $15,000 four-wheeler will be used to patrol the bike path and break up parties in the woods.  McMahon tells the “Gazette” he’s dreamed about purchasing the vehicle for several years.
