SWANTON, OH (Toledo News Now) -
The Ohio State Highway Patrol has released a report of felony arrests for the year 2013 so far, and the numbers are staggering.
Through June 2013, the OSHP has initiated 2,685 felony cases, with 46 percent related to a felony drug charge and nearly 27 percent related to a felony assault charge.
The counties with the highest number of felony drug cases include Franklin, Scioto, Cuyahoga and Lorain. Felony drug arrests took place in all of Ohio's counties except for 10, including Henry and Paulding.
Through effective traffic enforcement, the OSHP is significantly impacting the criminal element on the state's roadways and in local communities. By troopers taking extra time during each traffic stop and paying close attention to possible indicators of criminal activity, what starts as a traffic stop can quickly escalate into a felony arrest.
"Every day our troopers are out on the road removing felons and drugs out of our communities," said Lt. William Bowers, commander of the Toledo Post. "Taking the time to look for criminal indicators can go a long way towards a safer Ohio."
In addition, troopers have made 4,728 drug arrests during the first six months of 2013, which is an increase of 18 percent over the same timeframe in 2012. It's also an increase of 42 percent when compared to the previous three-year average from 2010 to 2012.
Drug interdiction efforts are essential to improving the quality of life in Ohio. Dangerous drugs are being trafficked into Ohio, broken down into smaller quantities and are making their way into communities.
The number of marijuana, cocaine, crack and heroin cases have all increased substantially. The total number of heroin cases has increased 100 percent, and the total amount seized has increased 26 percent compared to the three-year average.
During the first six months, troopers have seized
-more prescription pills with stimulants up 101 percent
-depressants up 87 percent
-hallucinogens up 77 percent when compared to the previous three-year average
Drivers are encouraged to call #677 to report impaired driving or drug activity.
