Officials Use NFL-Styled Van to Serve Warrants
November 11, 2010
CONNELLSVILLE, Pa. (AP) – Two constables in western Pennsylvania decided driving around in a car resembling a police cruiser was preventing them from serving warrants. So, they decided to go black and gold.
Constables Hubie Coleman and Albert Younkin used a van decorated in Steelers colors and the team logo.
Coleman says they drove up to houses and honked the horn. People came out to see them because they were curious about the van. That’s when they served the court papers.
They also play the team’s fight song when transporting people to a district judge.
The constables borrowed the van from a car dealership. They tell the Daily Courier of Connellsville that they won’t use it again since their cover is blown, but they are looking for other unique ways to get their job done.
