Recently, police in the Cleveland suburb of Mayfield Heights, Ohio posted signs that warned motorists that a drug checkpoint were ahead on Interstate 271 and that they would need to stop and that drug sniffing dogs would be searching their vehicles for illegal substances.
The police know drug checkpoints are not allowed, but posted the signs to see if any drivers would react in a suspicious manner after seeing them. Four people were stopped and some arrests and drugs were seized.
Mayfield Heights assistant prosecutor Dominic Vitantonio, believes the fake checkpoints are legal and helps authorities in the war on drugs.
“We should be applauded for doing this,” Vitantonio said. “It’s a good thing.”
