Maries County deputies doing extra patrols tonight to catch drunk drivers

MARIES COUNTY, Mo. (Dec. 31, 2010) — Maries County Sheriff Chris Heitman announced Friday that his deputies will be conducting extra patrols this evening and into the morning hours of New Years Day.

The extra patrols were planned long before the tornado which struck Fort Leonard Wood today and are funded by a grant from the Missouri Department of Transportation.

The saturation patrols are intended to deter and apprehend drunk drivers.

“There will be a lot of alcohol consumption tonight; I just hope everyone is responsible and they make it home safe,” Heitman said in a prepared statement.
