Autauga Co. Sheriff's Dept. gets new search boat

Posted: Updated:
AUTAUGA CO., AL (WSFA) -

The Autauga County Sheriff's Department is showing off a new piece of equipment they've been looking to obtain since last year.

The department now has as new 20 foot search and rescue boat worth approximately $36,000.

The boat comes with what investigators say is a very expensive sonar finder that can 'see' underwater 180 feet on either side of the boat.

Authorities say they've wanted the boat since investigating a drowning in Autaugaville in 2013.

The boat was obtained through a grant with the Department of Homeland Security.
