Check-Point Results in Seven Offenses, One Warning

NORTH COVENTRY PA – A five-hour sobriety check-point hosted during Friday and Saturday (Sept. 3-4, 2021) overnight hours by the North Coventry Police Department, at the intersection of Route 100 and Lenape Crossing, resulted in two arrests, the issuance of five traffic citations, and a driver’s warning, it reported Saturday.

The department’s CrimeWatch website said that, during the operation, participating members of a multi-jurisdictional team of police officers arrested one individual for driving under the influence, and an second individual who was wanted on an outstanding warrant in a separate and unrelated incident.

Additionally, four citations were issued to drivers operating vehicles with expired inspections, and one to an individual driving with a suspended license. One driver received a written warning for an expired inspection.

Salaries for officers’ work performed during the check-point are being paid to their respective departments with money distributed under a Pennsylvania Department of Transportation “Team DUI” grant, the report noted.
