Deputies, troopers work together to battle war on drugs

| December 30, 2016

COSHOCTON – In the evening hours of Dec. 29, 2016, deputies from the Coshocton County Sheriff’s Office and troopers from the Ohio State Highway Patrol worked together in a collaborative effort performing a drug interdiction in the community.

This targeted enforcement consisted of four hours of intense policing in areas known for drug activity. These officers initiated 70 traffic stops, out of which 16 citations were issued, one of which was an OVI. Drugs were located in a couple stops and these remain under investigation at this time. Additional drug interdictions will be scheduled throughout 2017.

These targeted enforcements are just another way the sheriff’s office continues to battle the war on drugs in the community.  If anyone has any information that they would like to share with the office, they can call 740-622-2411, the TIPS line at 740-623-TIPS (8477) or message the office on its Facebook page.
