State Police Safety Check Saturday Leads to Six Arrests for Drugs and Alcohol

Posted by wlpo on September 26, 2016

You’ve probably run into a State Police roadside safety check if you’ve been out and about late at night. Have you ever wondered how effective they are?

A total of six people were arrested for drug and alcohol violations at a checkpoint that was set up at the Route 251 and North 25th Road intersection. The checkpoint was held in the “late evening hours” on Saturday, according to police.

Of the six arrested, 2 were busted for driving under the influence. They said the other four involved “other drug and alcohol arrests.”

Nine other tickets were also issued during the checkpoint by police, and fourteen written warnings were given out.
