CRYSTAL LAKE Crystal Lake police and Illinois State Police issued about two dozen citations and made several arrests over the holiday weekend at a roadside safety checkpoint.
The checkpoint was held from 10 p.m. Friday and to 2 a.m. Saturday on U.S. Highway 14 near McHenry County College, said Crystal Lake Deputy Police Chief Howard Parth.State police made two arrests for cocaine possession, three arrests for marijuana possession and possession of drug paraphernalia and one arrest for driving while under the influence, and issued a dozen citations for traffic offenses.Crystal Lake police made one arrest for driving while under the influence and another arrest for attempted obstruction of justice and issued about 15 citations for traffic offenses.Parth said he was pleased that of the vehicles stopped, only two were for drunken driving."That tells me that enforcement by police agencies is having an impact," Parth said. "That's still two too many, but it sure is better than coming up with a higher number."
