Hagerstown Police Department officials say they hope the city’s recent purchase of three off-road motorcycles will help beef up patrols in back alleys and other areas that are too small for police cars to maneuver. Capt. Mark Holtzman said the motorcycles will allow the officers to more effectively patrol alleys, railroad property and several city parks. “It allows the officers to reach areas of the city that don’t get patrolled on a regular basis,” he said. Holtzman said the police department used confiscated drug money to purchase three Suzuki 400s for about $6,000 each from Twigg Cycles on Edgewood Drive.
