VERNON, Vt. (AP) - A town that disbanded its police department as it faced a big tax revenue loss with the closing of the Vermont Yankee nuclear power plant is having a hard time selling two police cruisers.

The Brattleboro Reformer reports (https://bit.ly/1EHhimD) nine months after Vernon’s police department closed, the town has managed to sell one of three cruisers. The others are newer and in better shape.

The town now contracts with the Windham County Sheriff’s Department, which had no use for the cruisers.

This month, a 2007 Dodge Charger sold for $2,100. The others are a 2010 Chevrolet Tahoe and a 2014 Ford Taurus Interceptor.
