WEST LIBERTY, Ky. (WHAS11) -- The tornado that tore through West Liberty, Ky. took out almost the entire fleet of police cruisers and now a police department in Louisville is coming to the rescue.

West Liberty was left with only one cruiser after storms moved through March 2. So the St. Matthews Police Department decided to chip in. They had three cars they were going to get rid of, but were still usable.

So with some help from the St. Matthews Wal-Mart, longtime St. Matthews Police Chief norm Mayer says they packed the cruisers full of food and drove them to West Liberty.

Before dropping them off, the St. Matthews Police Department changed the frequencies on all the radios to match the West Liberty Police Department. The cruisers were also still equipped with blue lights.
