Update from Officer Grimsley on Street Racing Enforcement this weekend: “This weekend, we did have officers out again on the highways. The officers on the highways did make traffic stops and issued numerous tickets. One car that was stopped was impounded. We also had officers in unmarked cars monitoring the racers and checking on popular meeting spots. The police helicopter was also used to track and air the racers locations to the officers on the streets. One of the locations, was at the Micro Center off of I-225. Once the group was found, they were moved along by officers.”
