La Mesa Police Cite 13 in DUI Sting
EL CAJON -- The La Mesa Police Department conducted a Court Sting Operation at the East County branch of the San Diego Superior Court, 250 E. Main St, El Cajon, on Thursday. The main focus will be to identify those drivers who continue to drive even after having their license suspended as the result of a prior DUI arrest. The effort will occur during a four-hour period.
The detail was operation for a little more than three hours. The officers contacted 171 subjects and determined 13 were found to be driving on a suspended or revoked license. All of those were issued a citation adn their cars were impounded and then placed on a hold due to the driver having a suspended license.
Police said the operation was intended to serve as yet another reminder to the citizens of our community, that the La Mesa Police Department will not tolerate drunk drivers or those persons who continue to drive after having their license suspended.
The La Mesa Police Department were assisted by members of the San Diego County Probation Department.
