Constables use Pittsburgh Steeler van to serve warrants

Two constables in western Pennsylvania decided driving around in a car resembling a police cruiser was preventing them from serving warrants. So, they decided to use a van decorated in Pittsburgh Steeler black and gold.

Constables Hubie Coleman and Albert Younkin used a van decorated in Steelers colors and the team logo.
Coleman says they drove up to houses and honked the horn. People came out to see them because they were curious about the van. That's when they served the court papers.
The constables borrowed the van from a car dealership.

They won't use the van again since their cover is blown, but they are looking for other unique ways to get their job done.
