Guatemala Police Turn Drug Dealer’s Corvette Into A Police Car

As it turns out, it’s not just police in Texas benefiting from seized drug dealer cars, authorities in Guatemala recently turned a drug dealer’s Corvette Stingray into a new police cruiser.

The sports car was seized from Manuel Felipe Arelanes Monroy when he was arrested in 2016 and swiftly re-painted (or wrapped) in the blue, white and yellow colors of the National Civil Police force.

Unlike many other exotic cars used by police forces around the world, Guatemala’s Corvette isn’t just being used for promotional purposes, it’s actually been equipped with a full radio system and a light bar and will be used for security purposes near the La Aurora International Airport. Additionally, it will conduct night patrols throughout the country.

Evidently, the Dubai Police Force has really started a trend…
