State Police said Tuesday that they joined forces late last month with other law enforcement agencies on a large drug trafficking bust.
State Police joined forces with Michigan, Ohio, West Virginia, Pennsylvania and the Indiana State Police on Sept. 27-29, in an effort to combat drug trafficking through a marijuana interdiction and eradication enforcement blitz. Police say the enforcement effort netted 32 felony and 152 misdemeanor marijuana related drug arrests. The agencies also seized over 94,000 grams of marijuana and a total of 14,126 marijuana plants.
"Successful multi-agency enforcement efforts like this illustrate the collective power of making our roadways and communities safer for everyone," said KSP Commissioner Rodney Brewer.
This multi-agency enforcement effort was part of the 6 State Trooper Project, which is aimed at providing combined and coordinated law enforcement and security services in the areas of highway safety, criminal patrol and intelligence sharing.
