The U.S. Department of Justice has ordered a police sheriff to repay $70,000 (about N25m in Naira) seized drug money that his office used to buy a 707hp Dodge Charger Hellcat, which they termed too “extravagant” of a purchase.

They believe the money from seized assets distributed to law agencies should be treated like taxpayers’ money.

The Sheriff Butch Conway ,a reputable name for a law enforcement agent, authorised the $69,258 to buy the Muscle car in May.

The purchase was initially approved by the Department of Justice (DoJ) at the time, but weren’t informed that it was the high-powered 707hp version of the Charger .

The 292hp Dodge Chargers that cost about $32,020 (about N11.6m in Naira) a piece, are popular among police force in US, but not this Special Service model with the Hellcat's 6.2-liter supercharged V8 engine with a top speed of 204 mph.

The Sheriff initially did his best to justify the purchase which he had been driving as his personal car to and from work as well as to events where the police can work with young drivers to educate them about the risks of driving drunk or distracted.

The Sheriff's office said in a written statement that :
“Sheriff Conway maintains that this vehicle is an appropriate purchase, especially for an agency with a $92 million budget and the opportunity this vehicle provides in making our roadways safer" while responded to the DoJ’s assertion that legislation is there to prohibit the use of seized funds to make extravagant purchases

The deadline for reimbursement is July 31 and the sheriff office’s forfeiture funding (seized money distributed to law enforcement agencies) has been frozen until the payment is made.

You're right my brother. Unlike here in naija where those that embezzled taxpayers' money like Timipre Sylva, maina, Buratai, Fashola, Fayemi, Babachir etc and forgers like Kemi Adeosun are being rewarded with ministerial appointments, left untried in courts, still retaining their positions or even recalled to work for the govt as in the case of Maina after being once declared wanted by EFCC.

PDP was bad but APC is worse, but sadly some zombies and lowlifers still spend their youthful lives asslicking most corrupt and inept we ever had in Nigeria.

Can you see why things don't work here? Because we have zombies praising and cheering tyrants

Here, the IGP would come on air to justify police rascality and lawlessness while our docile presidents looks on and zombies attack those criticising police just because the head of police works for the pay master.

You are very right bro.
Some citizens of our nation's are so pathetic.
This is just about what we posted on Frontpage about the ASUU issue blaming JAMB for remitting billions to the FG.
