Six Drivers Arrested At Glendora Checkpoint

The Glendora Police Department announced the results of their DUI/driver license checkpoint held from 7 p.m. May 29, through 3 a.m. May 30.

During the eight-hour operation, held on Grand Avenue near Gladstone Street, 1,700 vehicles passed through the checkpoint and six arrests were made. Two of the drivers arrested were booked on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol with blood-alcohol contents of more than double the legal limit, according to police in a written statement.

Officers also issued 20 citations for a variety of violations and 14 vehicles were impounded, police said.

“DUI/Driver’s License checkpoints have been shown to lower DUI deaths and injuries. A major component of DUI checkpoints is the deterrent effect it has on those who might drive drunk or drug impaired,” Glendora Police said.

Glendora officers will conduct DUI saturation patrols during the summer months in an effort to reduce DUI related deaths and injuries on streets and highways.
