The Scotland County Board of Commissioners voted Monday to purchase six of the eight Ford Police Interceptors that Sheriff Shep Jones said arrived without his approval in early January.
A contrite Jones revealed on Friday that it was Captain James Pegues of his office who gave the errant go-ahead and ordered the eight vehicles. Jones said that he merely wanted to look at sample contracts prior to Pegues’ decision.
