The preliminary estimate of funds raised at yesterday’s Andalusia Police Department’s Arrest-A-Friend is $12,278.

Brandy Hudson, wife of Chief Paul Hudson said that a few more hundred dollars are expected to come in today.

McKenna Fore and Ashley Morgan had to put on orange jumpsuits.

The amount raised is nearly double last year’s $6,500 raised the day of the fundraiser.

Hudson said they set a goal of $7,500 and they far exceeded that.

In its ninth year, the fundraiser was held on the Court Square and funds go to Covington County Relay for Life.
