The checkpoint was set up between 7 p.m. Friday and 2 a.m. today in the 16700 block of Espola Road, near Valle Verde Park, said Deputy Mark Talley, of the San Diego Sheriff's Department Poway Station.

More than 1,000 vehicles passed through the checkpoint and 28 were sent to a secondary screening, Talley said.

Four drivers were arrested for suspicion of drunken driving, and one was arrested for driving with a suspended license, Talley said. Two drivers were cited for possession of marijuana.

Two additional drunken driving arrests were made by deputies patrolling the area.

Approximately 25 deputies and senior volunteers conducted the operation.
