In addition to the drug-related busts, police cited 12 speeders, 11 uninsured motorists and six drivers who didn't buckle up, according to a Minooka police news release. Seven suspended/revoked license charges also were approved.
The enforcement period, which was supported by the Illinois Department of Transportation, ran from Nov. 18 to Dec. 1. Minooka was just one of many state and local law enforcement agencies conducting such operations. Seat belt violation and driving under the influence campaigns were merged into one operation.
"Our officers are out all year long," said Chief Justin Meyer, in the release. "If you or your passengers are caught not wearing a seat belt, day or night, you will be cited for the safety violation."
