CALHOUN COUNTY, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- What is old is new again for the Calhoun County Sheriff's Department.

The department was able to upgrade its fleet, thanks to some help from the Nitro Police Department.

According to Sheriff Jeff Starcher, his department, like so many other sheriff's departments, is dealing with a tight operating budget -- meaning things like new cars aren't easy to come by.

But that all changed Thursday afternoon when he and officer Jason Elkins were happy to accept the delivery of two 2009 Dodge Chargers from Nitro Police Department Maj. Dave Richardson.

The cruisers just need emergency radios and have relatively low-mileage, Starcher said.

He said NPD heard about the county's need and agreed to sell the Chargers for $5,000 each, and the Calhoun County Commissioners signed off on the deal.

The cars will be roadworthy after they are painted and marked. W.Va. House passes resolution to increase speed limit to 75 mph.
