Lagrange Corridor crime targeted in nine-day Toledo Police operation

A nine-day police operation in north Toledo landed hundreds of people in handcuffs and helped fight the potential for crime on city streets.

Toledo Police say a target enforcement operation along the Lagrange Corridor took place 24-hours a day over the course of nine days, ending Saturday.

The stepped-up enforcement resulted in 200 arrests on a variety of charges and warrants. Four narcotics-related search warrants were also executed in the area.

According to police, "The overarching goal of (the) operation was to reduce criminal activity, make significant non-adversarial contacts with residents, and identify and ameliorate neighborhood issues endemic to the area that create an environment for crime to occur."

The operation brought about the following: 37 felony charges, 377 misdemeanor charges, 299 traffic citations, 2 curfew violations, 68 parking tags, 2 gun seizures, and 25 drug arrests.
