    Every effort will be made to not severely disrupt the flow of traffic. Motorist patience and cooperation will assist police in the operation.

They arrested five people for driving while impaired, three for no valid driver's license, one for careless driving, one for felony cocaine possession, two for misdemeanor marijuana, one for drug paraphernalia, one for weapons violation, one for minor in possession, one for immigration violation, one for failing to obey an officer, six for non-hazardous violations, four on outstanding warrants, and one for a seized motor vehicle.
    The Kansas City Police Department and Grandview Police Department helped in the operation.
