LPD Continue Checkpoints in City

Posted: Updated:

LAWTON Okla_ Lawton police were out performing more checkpoints Wednesday.

Officers once again stopped drivers at various checkpoints around the city, including one at the intersection of 18th and Smith.

"It's one of the things we're trying to do to make sure people have what they need to operate a vehicle on the roadway," LPD Lieutenant Jim Cowley said.

This is the second day for checkpoints this month, and police say there are more to come. If you come upon one, you can make the experience go smoothly by making sure you have your driver's license, registration and proof of insurance ready. You'll also want to make sure you don't have things that you shouldn't. Police have recovered weapons and marijuana from other checkpoints.
