LCSO puts new tag reader to work

The Lee County Sheriff's Office has a new tag reader and they're putting it to work.

Major Keith Houston with the LCSO says right now they only have one but they use it all around the county and so far, it's been helpful. Houston says they use the tag reader to see things like a suspended registration or if a vehicle is stolen among many other things.

Houston says having a tag reader helps them keep the roadways safer.
