Orangeburg cops use new tool to track stolen cars

Jul 9, 2011 12:08:00 AM - thestate.com
As cars zigged and zagged through the busy Chestnut Street and St. Matthews Road intersection, the unit sounded off: "Yabba Dabba Doo!"

"I got a hit," the officer said. "Hang on."

Out of hundreds of cars navigating the intersection, Orangeburg County's new license plate recognition system picked out one that could have a problem.

Sheriff Leroy Ravenell said the new crime-fighting tool will help law enforcement by tracking down stolen cars or vehicles used in crimes.

"The new tool, I believe, will help Orangeburg County with stolen vehicles, stolen tags," the sheriff said. "It can also give us information on sex offenders."
