(POCATELLO, ID) – The Pocatello Police Department has a new armored personnel carrier. Federal authorities have been selling Mine Resistant Ambush Protected vehicles, or MRAPs, to law enforcement agencies around the nation. The vehicles are normally used for combat operations in the Middle East. KPVI reports that the Preston Police Department also has an MRAP, and Bannock County has a similar vehicle known as a Bearcat. Officials say the new vehicle was free, although the city had to pay a $6,000 shipping fee.
