BURLINGTON, N.C. -- Alamance County Sheriff Terry Johnson won the bell-ringing competition against his opponent Burlington Police Chief Jeffrey Smythe.

But together, the two men raised an impressive $3,400 for the Salvation Army.

Sheriff Johnson collected a whopping $2,474.52 in donations, while Smythe collected $949.42 - both very impressive totals!

The two men rang the bell outside Walmart on Garden Road in Burlington on Saturday morning.

Before the bell-ringing battle, Chief Smythe and Sheriff Johnson shared some light-hearted smack-talk.

"Someone better call Santa, because I'm about to 'sleigh' the competition," said Chief Smythe.

Sheriff Johnson had this to say to Chief Smythe - "I will see you on the battlefield at Walmart on Garden Road at 10-o-clock, and I will win this battle!"
