LUNA COUNTY, NM — Thirty vehicles of the Luna County Sheriff's Office are now equipped with computers that will enhance and expand communication capability.
The computers, which cost about $10,000 each, were purchased with federal funds through Operation Stonegarden and other allocations for border security. Operation Stonegarden is a project in which local agencies work with the U.S. Border Patrol on border-related crime.
