SANFORD-Statewide, law enforcement officers like the new state law that allows them to seize vehicles that try to outrun officers.  Sheriff Tracy Carter said it’s a good law and one that was needed.  He didn’t say how many vehicles have been seized locally, but some counties have reported as many as ten vehicles seized.  The law allows officers to impound vehicles if a driver is charged with felony fleeing to elude arrest.  If the driver is found guilty, the vehicle is auctioned off and the proceeds are given to local school systems.  If the suspect is found to be innocent, vehicles are returned.
