RALEIGH, NC — The 11-month ban that stopped North Carolina law enforcement agencies from claiming free surplus military equipment is over.  The feds suspended NC from the program last year because of inventory-keeping issues.

A WCCB Charlotte investigation last September uncovered the type of military equipment that’s in the hands of our local law enforcement agencies.  We found everything from grenade launchers to mine-resistant vehicles.
