Sobriety checkpoint update (July 3rd)
Saturation patrols will continue throughout this weekend and multiple OVI checkpoints are scheduled in this part of Ohio. WHIO reports that the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office, Ohio State Patrol and the Montgomery County Combined Agency OVI Task Force will conduct an OVI/Sobriety checkpoint tonight, but neither WHIO or the Sheriff’s Office know of the location as of the filing of this update (stay tuned for details). Clark County (Springfield) Sheriff and Clark County Ohio State Highway Patrol report no OVI checkpoint, but they are putting extra units on the road to detect drunk drivers. Sources at the Greene County Sheriff and the Greene County Ohio State Highway Patrol also say that extra patrols for OVI detection will take place, but that no OVI checkpoints are planned.
WLW News reports that tonight throughout Southwest Ohio Ohio State Highway Patrol and local law enforcement received grants for increased saturation patrols. WLW is reporting no checkpoints tonight for anyone in their listening area.
