GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO)-- The truck has been deemed the "bread truck" simply because that's what it looks like.

And with age, things are falling apart piece by piece. The vehicle doesn't have air conditioning, seat belts or air bags. The whole department is excited for the new upgrade.

"It gives us a nice place to store all of our equipment," says Sergeant of Crime and Evidence Lab David Oswalt. "A lot of the equipment we don’t even keep in this vehicle because we don’t have enough space for it. It will allow us to keep fluids and some chemicals in the vehicle as well which currently we can’t do."

The funding for this project comes from money that is seized from crime scenes, not tax dollars.
