GREELEY, Colorado – A man who bought the former service car of a fallen Weld County Sheriff’s deputy during an auction Wednesday gave the vehicle to the deputy’s son, Tanner Brownlee.
Steve Wells bid $60,000 for the 2010 Dodge Charger valued at $12,500. The car was used by Sam Brownlee, who was killed in 2010 in the line of duty.
After placing the winning bid, Wells walked over to Brownlee’s son and handed the keys to him, saying “Tanner, here’s your car.”
“Realizing how much this car meant to him, I understand it now, and I want to keep that and hold onto it,” Tanner told 9NEWS before the auction.
