He said the county has estimated a total for the entirety of Aiken County to be around $163 million, but calculations the city has done estimate it will actually be around $104 million.

The funding given to each of the entities receiving it is calculated by two metrics. The county-wide total is split in half, and the two halves are doled out to

Future ‘eye in the sky’ aids Sheriff’s Office

ASHEBORO — It moves in silently, seeking out targets and completing complicated missions, collecting evidence, all for use by the Randolph County Sheriff’s Office. That is its job.

“It” is the Tecnam P92 Eaglet Light Sport, shared by three law enforcement agencies — in Randolph, Guilford and Alamance counties. This plane has been used by the three agencies for surveillance, drug interdiction, search and rescue, and crime scene investigation since 2009.

Detective Sgt. Ryan McClelland, who has been flying for 24 years, pilots the plane for Randolph County.

“We only use the plane in active investigations,” he said. “And we want the community to know that no tax dollars are paying for this plane and what it does. It is paid for entirely by using drug seizure funds.”

The plane has had some updates in recent years and an even bigger update is

Pollinating a better future

BRAZIL, Ind. — When Andy Lohrman isn’t working as a crime scene investigator for the Indiana State Police, he’s beekeeping and running his store — Honeysuckle Hill Bee Supply.

His problem-solving mindset has helped as a beekeeper. He’s built an observation hive in the store, wooden hive parts and a special tool to kill mites.

His wife, Jodi, runs the Honeysuckle Hill Bee-stro — a restaurant downstairs from the supply store.

“The area below the bee-stro is my wood shop where I build supplies,” he said. “I build different hive parts. I also have a swam-inator bee vacuum, which is designed to suck bees into a hive body.

“We also manufacture an oxalic acid vaporizer. It’s designed to deliver oxalic acid, an organic compound, into beehives to kill varroa mites. The varroa mite, in my opinion, is the No. 1 enemy to honeybees.

“We didn’t invent the idea of a vaporizer killing mites, but I

NPD’s new crime scene van signals a shift towards the future – Newnan Times

Clay Neely / The Newnan Times-Herald

Officer Thomas Lanyi stands inside the new crime scene van that belongs to the Newnan Police Department. Along with Lt. Tate Washington, Lanyi designed the interior to accommodate the needs of any active crime scene.

For many years, Newnan police crime scene technicians made do with a rather unorthodox vehicle for the job: a 2007 Chevy Impala.
