BRUNSWICK COUNTY, NC (WECT) - The Brunswick County Sheriff's Office has a new home closer to the state line.

Sheriff John Ingram cut the police tape at the new Sheriff's Sub Station in Calabash.

Ingram told the crowd there has always been a need for the station in the southern part of the county.

He said this will serve as a deterrent against crime and will save time from having to travel to the main headquarters in Bolivia.

"We hope that by manning this sub-station, not only with the sheriff's personnel, but volunteers, we will be able to provide services here that they would otherwise have to travel to Bolivia," said Ingram.

Ingram also said there are plans to open another sub station in the northern part of the county.
