A pair of checkpoints to check for those who may be unlicensed or driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol resulted in 14 arrests on Friday night, according to the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station.

Friday’s checkpoints were conducted at Bouquet Canyon Road at Wellston Drive in Saugus and Whites Canyon Road at Delight Street in Canyon Country from 6 p.m. to 2 a.m., according to a news release from the Sheriff’s Station.

“These checkpoints were two of the many that have been or will be conducted throughout the year in the city of Santa Clarita,” the news release reads.

During the checkpoints, two people were arrested for DUI and another was arrested on suspicion of illegal possession of narcotics.

Another person was arrested for driving a vehicle not equipped with an ignition interlock device as is required by law and another was arrested on a $40,000 traffic warrant and sent to court, according to the news release.

Four people with licenses that had been suspended or revoked were arrested and sent to court and five unlicensed drivers were arrested and sent to court, according to the news release.

Additionally, three vehicles were impounded for 30 days and two others were stored for one day.

According to the news release, a major component of checkpoints is the deterrent effect it has on those who might drive while under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
