    Police in Connecticut Hand out Toys on Armored Bearcat

    Manchester Police are on a mission this Christmas Day--delivering toys to needy children.

    Police cruised through town this morning in an armored vehicle, decked out in lights and tinsel, to hand out toys to needy children.

    The families who needed the gifts were identified through the Salvation Army and the Blue Angels Foundation that is run by Sgt Hughes at the Manchester Police Department.

    Toys are donated by the local Elks Club. They collected enough toys to donate to 44 children.

    The officers' sleigh is the department's armored Bearcat, a $250,000 vehicle that is designed for tactical emergency response.
