Hicks halts highway drug stops during program review

(Continued)

CHICKASHA —

Desert Snow instructors all have background in law enforcement across the United States. The training program is still in place and will only halt operation on highways. According to a press release over the weekend, the program has seized 100 pounds of marijuana, multiple ounces of cocaine, hundreds of pills and approximately $1.3 million dollars from drug trafficking to date. State law allows money seized during drug busts to go toward training. The rest, Hicks said, will go into the budget of the Task Force and is planned to be used to add a prosecutor and investigator.
