Tom Bean Police receive new vehicle from an anonymous donor

By  | 

TOM BEAN, TX -- Tom Bean Police have received a very generous donation. Someone anonymously donated a 2011 Ford pickup truck to the department and at Monday's meeting city council members officially accepted the gift.

Police Chief John Hunt says they have been in need of a new vehicle, but did not have the funds to buy one. Hunt says the truck is worth more than $24,000 dollars.

"A donation this size is unbelievable to the point where I had been driving my truck for the past five months and wearing out my truck, but this one is a God send. Thank you anonymous donor, " Chief Hunt said.

The truck will replace a 2008 Crown Victoria. Hunt says they plan to mark and put lights on the truck within the next couple of weeks.
