The Lawton Police Departments Narcotics Division, as the result of arresting a local drug dealer, confiscated a 1984 Chevrolet Corvette. This vehicle was used for undercover narcotic operations for approximately 7 years. The Corvette was customized into a Crime Stoppers vehicle with the assistance of local businesses. The vehicle is used for special functions such as the Cops & Kids picnic, parades and other special functions. It is also used for actual police functions such as the serving of search warrants for narcotics.
Many local businesses have pitched-in to help Crime Stoppers customize this Corvette, all through donations. For example, Goodyear Tire & Rubber started with a set of Goodyear Eagle tires, the Goodyear Service Stores on S.W. 11 and on N.W. Cache Rd. both donated 2 Eagle rims to match. Guys Paint & Body Shop applied a custom showroom quality paint job that definitely turns some heads. New seats and carpet courtesy of Cleland’s Upholstery, an all new exhaust system and a total reworked suspension by Midas Mufflers makes this Vette ride as good as it looks and the suspension parts were provided by Auto Zone.
And of course, retired Lt. Bruce Lefebvre, of the Lawton Police Department, was instrumental in coordinating this project and donated a great deal of time and effort.
