The Ohio State Highway Patrol collaborated with other members of the 6-State Trooper project last week to remove drugs and illegal weapons.

The project started March 7 and ended March 9. During the project, Ohio State Highway Patrol reported making 13 weapon arrests and 242 drug arrests. 

“The Patrol remains vigilant in stopping drugs and illegal weapons from being on our roadways,” said Colonel Paul Pride in a press release. “By partnering with our neighboring states, we are making the roads into and out of Ohio, as well as in our communities, safer for everyone.”

The project is made up of OSHP, Indiana State Police, Kentucky State Police, Michigan State Police, Pennsylvania State Police and West Virginia State Police.
