RALEIGH — At least four North Carolina agencies bought expensive, high-tech surveillance gear from a private security firm linked to Senate Majority Leader Tony Rand.

The News & Observer of Raleigh reported that the Fayetteville Democrat has served as board chairman for Raleigh-based Law Enforcement Associates Inc. since 2003.

The state bought at least $192,683 in equipment from LEA during the past five years, including a $2,695 jacket with a hidden camera for undercover stings. The State Bureau of Investigation bought up to $108,321 in video gear and other gadgets since 2006.

Rand said he wasn’t aware that state agencies were a client, but added that he wasn’t surprised because his company sells to law enforcement agencies across the country.

Usually Santa’s preferred mode of transportation is by sleigh, but Sunday afternoon it was a Harley. The man in red led the way for more than one thousand bikers who took part in the annual Toys for Tots Ride.

In its seventeenth year, the event is the largest drop off point for Toys for Tots in New Hanover County. The riders took a forty mile trip around the Port City, coming from Carolina Coast Harley on Market Street to downtown and back again. Organizers said it gets everyone in the holiday spirit.

“This event does it for everybody, and its not just Harley riders here. There are other riders, all kinds of riders, and everyone is welcome. Its not about any particular group, it is about the children,” said Toys for Tots Ride coordinator Janice Noyes.

The event has grown tremendously over the years, coming from fifty riders to more than a thousand.

Anyone who would like can still drop off unwrapped presents at Harley Davidson on Market Street throughout the week.
