PLYMOUTH — The hard knocks keep coming for Marshall County Police. Already this year two police cruisers have been destroyed.
"It's just one of those unexpected problems that we're faced with in this business," said Marshall County Sheriff Tom Chamberlin.
That's how Chamberlin summed up his double trouble.
He is used to a hot pursuit, but this time he's not chasing down criminals, he's on the hunt for a police cruiser.
"We've made several calls to see what's available, and it's going to be pretty difficult," said Chamberlin.
He's not looking for one, but two.
Chamberlin lost one cruiser earlier this year. But the hard knocks hit again Wednesday after Deputy Jeff Snyder lost control of his cruiser, crossed the highway and hit an embankment on U.S. 30, just east of U.S. 31. Chamberlin said another car drifted into Snyder's lane.
There's no easy solution.
"The new model years isn't out yet and most of the older models have been sold. We're looking," said Chamberlin.
