SCP Obtains Police Interceptor Patrol Vehicle

Stonehaven Community Patrol founder Brian K. Lutes is proud to announce that the Patrol has obtained a Ford Crown Victoria Police Interceptor from the Southern Motor Company in Pineville, NC.

The vehicle, which was purchased with the personal funds of  Stonehaven Patrol founder Brian Lutes & his wife, was originally owned by the Gaston County, NC Police Dept., is equipped with Ford’s factory “Police Interceptor” package which includes “rough service” components such as an extra-capacity cooling system, heavy duty vehicle suspension & braking systems, a high output 4.6 litre engine and electrical system as well as rough service interior seat fabrics.

The vehicle features a two tone green over silver paint scheme as well as reflective striping and “Stonehaven Community Patrol” placarding.

In addition, the vehicle is equipped with  green & white LED dash mounted emergency lighting as well as green strobe emergency beacon lights on its rear deck.

Having access to the vehicle on a “24/7″ basis has enabled the Patrol to greatly increase the number of hours spent patrolling the streets of the Stonehaven Area and allowed us to respond to calls for assistance much more consistently.

The cost of the vehicle alone was $2,100.00 and minor repairs such as a new battery & requisite cables, etc. cost approximately $350.00.

To date the Patrol has received just under $400 in contributions toward the cost of the vehicle  from the more than generous residents of the communities we serve and we hope to be the benificiaries of further contributions that will be used for maintenance of the vehicle.

We are greatly in need of additional financial contributions to support our operation of the vehicle, purchase batteries for flashlights & portable radios, attend requisite training classes, obtain needed educational materials such as updates to the North Carolina Motor Vehicle & Criminal Law Handbook, and miscellaneous equipment such as appropriate “Stonehaven Community Patrol” uniform apparrel and duty boots.

We have been certified as a North Carolina Non-Profit organization by the NC Secretary of State’s office and established an account at the Bank of America. 

 Financial contributions of any amount are greatly appreciated and checks or money orders can be sent to “Stonehaven Community Patrol” care of Phyllis Rea, 6009 Gate Post Road, Stonehaven, Charlotte, NC 28211. Phyllis can also be contacted via e-mail @ We will also happily receive gift cards from any retailer in any amount.

In addition, anyone with any questions can visit our web-site, or send us an-e-mail at, or simply call us at 980-297-8446. We are also very happy to personally meet anyone interested in our program in any way.
