The explosion occurred at VEDCO,

File Tape The sale generated 200 million
dollars to be distributed by a new
non-profit Foundation serving the
Danville area.

But it also led to a potential two
million dollar penalty by the I-R-S.

So the Foundation cut a deal that
eliminates the penalty but requires it
to allocate more than 16-million
dollars to four area projects within
the next year.

Announcements will be made this

week in Yanceyville, North Carolina,
Chatham and Danville.

All involve new building projects.

The state of the art technology
includes blood drying closets for
evidence that needs to be aired out.

And techniques like a special
light to identify fingerprints, drugs
and other powder residues on evidence.

Because the department can
process most of its latent evidence in
its own lab, that means months are
saved because there's no need to send
evidence off.

In fact, if a good fingerprint is
taken, examiners could potentially find
a match in about an hour.
