COLUMBUS – The Ohio State Highway Patrol joined forces with other members of the 6-State Trooper Project to remove drugs and illegal weapons from our communities. OSHP made six weapon arrests and 194 drug arrests during the initiative, from Thursday, March 3 at 12:01 a.m. through Saturday, March 5 at 11:59 p.m.

“The Patrol is committed to removing illegal activity from Ohio’s roadways,” said Colonel Paul A. Pride, Patrol superintendent. “The goal is always to make our roads and communities safer.”
