Multi-State, 3-day Blitz Nets Marijuana Seizures

Date of News Release: 10/09/2012

(Frankfort, KY.) The Kentucky 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.

This successful 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.
