PAGE COUNTY, Va. (WHSV) -- Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli is giving $115 million in grants to law enforcement.

The money is from a Medicaid fraud settlement in 2012.

The Page County Sheriff's Office received nearly $78,000 which will help the office add some extra cars that will mostly be used for search and rescue.

"It is equipment that it is above and beyond of what we can afford through our own local budgeting. It's equipment that we need and often use," said Sheriff John Thomas.

He expects to have the vehicles in the next few months.
