Police In Montana Find Unique Way To Distribute Holiday Turkeys


Good morning. I'm David Greene. In Montana, a businessman bought 20 turkeys. He asked the Billings Police Department to distribute them to the community before Thanksgiving, which the police are doing in a curious way. They are pulling drivers over for traffic violations. And as long as there's no outstanding warrant, the officer has been saying, here's your warning and also a frozen turkey. One driver jokingly told the Billings Gazette he needs another violation so he can get a turkey for Christmas, too. It's MORNING EDITION. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
