Sobriety checkpoints planned in Hilliard, Delaware County

CENTRAL OHIO (WCMH) — Police are planning several overnight sobriety checkpoints tonight, including two in Hilliard.

Two more checkpoints are planned in the City of Hilliard.

The first will be run between 8 and 10 p.m. on Hilliard-Rome Road at Richlanne Drive.
