Breathitt Co. Police Cars Are Parked

The high gas prices are affecting an Eastern Kentucky sheriff’s department.

Breathitt County Judge-Executive Jason Richardson said all but one of the sheriff’s department vehicles will stay parked until further notice.

Richardson went on to say that he’s done his fair share to help and assist the department, but when you keep on spending and spending, you have a problem.

Breathitt County Sheriff Ray Clemons said it is their duty to protect and serve the people, no matter what it takes.
