SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - Two of Savannah-Chatham Metro Police's cars are back in service and looking better than ever.

The antique 1947 and 1953 chevys are back in front of the police barracks where they belong. Police arrested Isaiah Jacobson for damaging the cars back in March while they were parked in front of the police barracks. On one of the vehicles, the driver's window was damaged and both headlights were knocked out. The other sustained minor damage as well. Within days, Ward's Paint and Body and Advance Auto Parts offered to fix them up, and now they're back.

Police chief Willie Lovett says, "It is extremely nice to have our vehicles back. While they were gone, it was like not being fully dressed. Those vehicles have become part of the old Savannah and Chatham police culture, and a very interesting tourist attraction."
