CANDOR, N.C. — The Candor Police Department in Montgomery County now has a new set of wheels!

The department received the pick-up truck for free earlier this month, after it was taken from a group of smugglers from Mexico who tried to use the truck to get over the border.

Candor Police Department received the truck through a federal program. All the department had to do was pay for shipping.

Chief Randy White said he believes it will come in handy during winter weather situations.
