Craven County Schools recently took possession of this 2008 KIA Rio LX 4 door sedan (pictured above), resulting from a DWI vehicle seizure. The original value of this vehicle (from the invoice in the car) was $15,689. The mileage when picked up was 16,067. According to transportation director Becton Broughton, it was driven from Linden to New Bern and performed great. He says that the vehicle will be used as a central office staff car.
In September, 2009, a vehicle seized in Iredell County yielded the largest single payout to an LEA in the 10+ year history of the DWI seizure program. A 2008 Jaguar was auctioned for $47,000. After deducting the towing, storage and sales fees for Tarheel Specialties, the proceeds of $44,517 was sent to the Iredell-Statesville Schools!
