Checkpoint Set Up By Wayne County Sheriff’s Office

The Wayne County Sheriff’s Office hosted a multi-agency DWI checkpoint 0n June 28, 2019 . The Wayne County Sheriff’s Office was assisted by the Goldsboro Police Department Traffic Enforcement Unit, the Pikeville Police Department, and the Wayne County Sheriff’s Office Detention Center.

The North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services Forensic Tests for Alcohol Branch also aided in the checkpoint by providing a Breath Alcohol Testing Mobile Unit (BAT Mobile) for on-site breath alcohol testing. The utilization of the BAT Mobile also provided law enforcement officers on scene the expedited access to a magistrate judge and a separate room for drug influence evaluations for suspected drug-impaired drivers.

The checkpoint resulted in the arrest of five (5) impaired drivers, 5 wanted-persons being apprehended, and 1 felony drug arrest, and 33 additional citations issued for offenses such as, but not limited to, driving while license revoked, no operator license, and child passenger restraint violations.

The Wayne County Sheriff’s Office DWI Task Force thanked all who participated in making this checking station a success as they continue their  mission in making the streets and highways in North Carolina a safer place for everyone to travel.
