GLENDALE — Police arrested six motorists in connection on suspicion of driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol during the first half of Memorial Day weekend.
One motorist arrested Friday was under the influence of cocaine, Glendale Police Sgt. Dennis Smith said.
"[Drug Recognition Enforcement] officers in training worked fast in identifying the driver," he said. "They were able to spot him right way."
The weekend operations were aimed at getting intoxicated drivers off the streets and educating motorists about drunk driving, police said.
Police stopped 52 vehicles during Friday's "Avoid the 100" saturation patrol, which yielded five DUI arrests, Smith said. Local police agencies join forces during the "Avoid the 100" campaign to arrest drunk drivers.
