On May 2, the Tipton County Sheriff’s Office was presented with an armored vehicle to be utilized by the SWAT team for high risk arrests and operations. The vehicle was previously used in the movie “Contraband”. The vehicle was donated by Don Baskin of Don Baskin Truck Sales, LLC located on Highway 51 in Covington. “I wanted to provide a tool for the Sheriff’s Office to fight the war against drugs in Tipton County. It was a long process in locating this type of vehicle which is heavily regulated due to the special features. Armored vehicles are normally destroyed once they are taken out of service.” said Mr. Don Baskin.
