Vehicles impounded and several arrested during South Bay checkpoint

Posted: Updated:

CHULA VISTA (CNS) - Chula Vista police impounded 14 vehicles and arrested four people on suspicion of drunken driving at checkpoint operation, a spokeswoman said Saturday.

Police set up on the westbound side of Main Street in the 2300 block about 7 p.m. Friday, and 1,047 vehicles passed through before the operation wrapped up about 12:30 a.m., Alicia Chudy said.

Police checked out 517 drivers, ticketing 11 for driving with a suspended license and 16 for having none, she said.

One of the four intoxicated drivers was found with some cocaine, she said. Another was additionally booked for resisting an officer, she said. Their names were not made available.

Half of the vehicles impounded came from people who were driving without a license or on a suspended or revoked one, Chudy said.

Typically, impounded cars are held for a week or more, making them expensive to retrieve, but Chudy said no holds were placed on any of the vehicles impounded.
