(North Lawrence Fire Department)

COLUMBUS, Ohio (News Talk 1480 WHBC and ONN) – More guns and more drugs.

The State Highway Patrol is seizing more illegal drugs and weapons involved in criminal activity this year compared to last.

How about 968 firearms taken so far this year compared to the four-year average of about 650.

Patrol Sgt Christina Hayes says she’s certain the confiscations have reduced crime, but there’s no way to track just how.
