Sandusky, Seneca counties hold 'saturation patrol'


FREMONT -- State and local law enforcement agencies conducted a “saturation patrol” last week in Sandusky and Seneca counties in what was called an effort to combat the rising drug abuse problem in those counties.

The Ohio Highway Patrol on Monday said officers made 539 traffic stops and 210 arrests during the two-day blitz Thursday and Friday. Thirteen impaired drivers were arrested, and 20 felony warrants served. Small amounts of suspected drugs, two guns, $6,849 in drug money, and a vehicle was seized.

“Successful multi-agency enforcement efforts like the one in Sandusky and Seneca County illustrate the collective power of removing drugs and wanted felons from our communities,” said Col. John Born, superintendent of the Highway Patrol.
