Holiday weekend and annual music festival has Putnam County deputies on alert

Posted by wlpo on May 23, 2015

You’ve been warned, speed or haul drugs through Putnam County at your own risk.

Putnam County Sheriff Kevin Doyle says patrols have ramped up since Thursday for not only Memorial Day traffic but for the thousands who are driving through Putnam County on their way to the Summer Camp Festival in Chillicothe. Doyle says the good news so far is that speeds are down and most drug arrests they’ve made along Route 29 have been misdemeanors.

Doyle says they are doing random patrols, not specific check points where everyone is stopped.
