HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — The Pennsylvania attorney general’s office is defending an arrangement that allows a top administrator to drive a Mercedes SUV seized in a drug case as his state-issued vehicle.

The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports that the office spent about $6,000 to repair acting chief of staff Jonathan Duecker’s 2006 Mercedes R-350.

Spokesman Chuck Ardo says having Duecker drive a seized vehicle saves money compared to leasing a car for $400 a month from a state fleet.

Duecker is the former head of the attorney general’s office’s Bureau of Narcotics Investigation. He’s driven the Mercedes for more than a year.

Ardo says Duecker is still intimately involved with narcotics investigations, making the arrangement OK under a state law restricting use of vehicles seized in drug cases to use in drug investigations.
