WORCESTER (CBS) – You don’t have to be on wheels to grab your coffee at the Dunkin’ Donuts drive-thru.

Worcester Police shared a photo Saturday of a mounted patrol officer snagging his iced coffee at the drive-thru while riding his horse.

“Drive-thru Old Western Style … John Wayne would be proud!” police tweeted.

The mounted patrol unit returned to the city in June for the first time since the 1940s.

It’s a full-time unit made up of seven officers and one lieutenant.

Worcester Police purchased and trained four horses for the unit in the spring.

  1. I love it! I was so saddened when Boston PD discontinued their Mounted Unit.
