Waco, Tx — A generous donation from a local business owner will help the McLennan County Sheriff's Office.
The $50,000 gift will be used to purchase guns, ammo, gear, and other things needed by the sheriff's office. Melvin Lipsitz, owner of a Waco metal recycling company, donated the money to help authorities better protect the community.
Earlier this year, McLennan County Commissioners approved the sheriff's request to by AR-15 style rifles to better arm deputies.
