    BARRE — Law enforcement officials say a sobriety checkpoint on Route 2 Friday yielded two arrests.

    The Washington County Sheriff’s Department said 397 vehicles were stopped. Ivan M. Alcide, 44, of Marshfield, was cited on a charge of driving with a suspended license, and Jonathon M. Wendt, 24, of Barre, was cited on possession of marijuana.

    Three traffic citations also were issued: two for drivers not having the proper registration papers and one for not stopping at a stop sign.

    The checkpoint was conducted with the Vermont State Police and police from Barre Town, Berlin, Montpelier and Northfield.
