ROUZERVILLE, Pa. -- Some classic-car buffs who like the old "Dukes of Hazzard" TV show have a replica of Bo and Luke Duke's orange Dodge Charger. Josh Delauter of Greencastle, Pa., took a different angle as a fan. He found a Plymouth Fury and made it look like the police car driven by the Duke boys' nemesis, Sheriff Rosco P. Coltrane. The white car says "Hazzard County Sheriff" on the side. While showing it off Saturday at Red Run Park during Rouzerfest '09, Delauter said he gave the car to his son, Benjamin, for his fourth birthday.

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.
