Dealership donates $1,800 to Brown County Sheriff's Office for drone

BROWNWOOD, Texas - House of Wheels, a motorcycle dealership in Brownwood, donated $1,800 to the Brown County Sheriff's Office to buy a drone.

Sheriff Vance Hill said no other law enforcement agency in the area has this technology and he plans to put it to good use. 

"We can search a lot larger area by air than probably four people can search by foot in the same amount of time," Hill said. "This is going to expedite the searches for evidence in crime scenes."

Hill said the drone should arrive in four weeks and deputies will be trained on how to use it.

The check presentation came as part of House of Wheels' 45th Anniversary celebration.
