Rugged Unicoi County gets surplus military Humvees

ERWIN, Tenn. (AP) -- The Unicoi County Sheriff's Office has a better way of getting around in rugged terrain because of a military surplus donation.

Sheriff Mike Hensley told The Johnson City Press (http://bit.ly/TGB4ew ) the department now has two Humvees that can be used to get to remote locations.

Hensley said his department recently picked up the vehicles in South Carolina at no cost to the county. Nearby Washington and Carter counties previously used the military surplus program to obtain vehicles.

The four-wheel-drive Humvees have high ground clearance and will be used for off-road travel and also on snow-covered roads.
