New Hanover Co. waits to close chopper sale


WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- New Hanover County is waiting on the top bidder in an online auction for the Sheriff's old helicopter to decide if he'll buy it.

The county says the top bid belongs to Kenneth Pyatt of SKY Helicopters, Inc., in Garland, TX. The bid for $425,000 was below the reserve price of $438,000, but the county decided to accept it.

A county spokesman says Pyatt now has five business days to close the deal.
