Operation Wrong Exit results in confiscations | News
7 pounds, 3 ounces and between seven and eight thousand dollars worth of illegal drugs.
That's how much Twiggs County confiscated in 24 hours last weekend during Operation Wrong Exit.
Operation Wrong Exit was a DUI and license checkpoint that involved 10 other law enforcement agencies. They set up annually right around Saint Patrick's Day.
It has a sign that leads drivers to believe police are actually an exit ahead.
So many cars would get off the highway early, only to find law enforcement waiting.
Officers made 134 arrests, 19 of which were people wanted by the state for crimes ranging from violating probation to burglary.
