A car seized from crooks returned to the insurance company which… gives it to the gendarmes!

This is a rather amusing news story, which relates how a vehicle seized from criminals finally returned to the hands of the police.

The gendarmes of Aveyron posing proudly in front of their new Peugeot 5008, almost fell from the sky, this is the anecdote told by the local press these days. The vehicle in question had first been seized by the gendarmes of the Millau research brigade in an organized gang fraud case. Justice was then passed and 5008 was returned to the insurance company Groupama.

A donation rather than a sale

Except that, rather to keep the said vehicle or to sell it at auction, the insurer then decided to give it to the gendarmes of Aveyron, Tuesday, May 3, keys delivered to the barracks of Egron, in Millau. In this case, it is the canine team of the Millau gendarmerie company which will have the benefit of the Peugeot 5008, as part of its specific missions, indicates the Actu.fr site.
