Police Serve Arrest Warrants Using Steelers Van

Constables in Fayette County, Pennsylvania needed to serve arrest warrants to certain folks, but the people in question wouldn't leave their homes. So the officers decided to lure the suspects outside using a van decorated in a Pittsburgh Steelers theme:

"It's been working great," Coleman said. "We sit outside and lay on the horn, and they come out. They're interested and curious."

The interest didn't end after the individuals found out they'd been had, either.

"One guy tried to buy the van off of us," Younkin said, adding that he named their new tactic "The Fayette County Constables Do the End Around," referring to a trick football play.

To keep with the football theme of using the Steelers van, Coleman and Younkin even play the Pittsburgh Steelers fight song on the way to Haggerty's office to those they pick up.
