Deputies seized cocaine and marijuana while conducting safety check points.

Three check points were set up at different times and locations throughout the county. Sheriff’s deputies also issued 23 citations and 27 warnings.

“We will continue to saturate various areas in the county with our primary focus being taking impaired drivers off the roadways,” Sheriff Jimmy McDuffie said.
