CLEVELAND (WJW) — The Fox 8 I-TEAM has learned that Ohio State Highway Patrol troopers arrested 18 people for felonies during a violent crime reduction detail Thursday in the city’s 3rd police district.

According to Sergeant Bridget Matt here’s what the violent crime reduction team accomplished.

  • 18 felony arrests.
  • 7 illegal firearms seized.
  • 4 recovered stolen vehicles.
  • Illegal narcotics seized included heroin, psilocybin (mushrooms), codeine, hashish oil, and marijuana

“The detail was cut short around 6 p.m. due to weather and our helicopter needed to return to Columbus,” Matt said.

The violent crime reduction team made 19 arrests during a detail in September.
