860

A two-week long proactive patrol operation by the Bossier City Police Department resulted in multiple arrests for drug and traffic offenses.

The operation was conducted from November 11, 2013 through November 21, 2013 and involved members of the Bossier City Police Department’s Motorcycle Unit and K-9 Unit stepping up traffic enforcement efforts on I-20.

The operation utilized a high police presence combined with proactive traffic enforcement which focused on speeding and other traffic violations to help reduce the numbers of motor vehicle accidents on I-20. At the same time, officers kept an eye out for other illegal activity including narcotics violations.

In all, officers made 120 traffic stops during the operation and made 21 arrests, mostly for traffic violations.

Two traffic stops resulted in the arrests of three people on felony drug charges. Two of those arrests were the subject of a BCPD news release on November 14, 2013 and involved police recovering approximately one quarter pound of what drug dealers consider high grade marijuana known as Kush along with 7 grams of methamphetamine.
