Over 200 arrests were made by Toledo Police in a ten-day enforcement blitz on the city's east side, according to Chief of Police Derrick Diggs.
From March 15 through Saturday, police targeted the area bounded by Front St., Elgin and White, and Nevada and Oak in East Toledo. Police say the area was chosen for the target enforcement due to the high number of burglaries and robberies compared to other parts of the city.
In the ten-day operation, 200 arrests were made in addition to 50 on-view felony charges and the execution of eight search warrants.
During the enforcement operation, police say there were no robberies within the targeted area. The city of Toledo also helped to clean up the area by identifying buildings for demolition.
Toledo Police and various community partners are scheduled to meet April 3 at 6 p.m. at the East Toledo Family Center to discuss the results of the operation.
