COLUMBUS, Ohio (WDTN) - The Ohio State Highway Patrol recently wrapped up a four day, statewide enforcement initiative.
Operation Shield Ohio ran from March 18 - 21.
The effort resulted in 49 drug cases, including 17 felony cases. Troopers seized nearly 10 pounds of marijuana, 29 grams of cocaine, 50 grams of heroin, and 764 illegal prescription pills. They also seized three guns and recovered a stolen vehicle.
"Successful enforcement efforts, like the most recent Operation Shield, illustrate the collective power of removing drugs and wanted felons from our communities," said Colonel John Born, Patrol superintendent. "Ohio is in the midst of a drug abuse epidemic and it is important that we work together to solve this problem."
The Patrol urges the public to call #677 to report drug activity.
