    BERLIN — Several law enforcement agencies conducted a sobriety checkpoint Friday on Route 302 in Barre.

    The agencies included the Washington County Sheriff’s Department, Vermont State Police, and police departments from Berlin, Montpelier and Northfield. At the checkpoint, 449 vehicles were stopped, and contact was made with 740 people.

    Police say 18 warnings were issued for motor vehicle violations and nine violation complaints were issued.

    Jimmy D. Gwara, 40, of Montpelier, was cited on a charge of driving with a suspended license. He is to appear in Washington County criminal court at a later date to answer the charge.

    No one was found to be driving under the influence.

    Police say more saturation patrols and sobriety checkpoints are planned for the upcoming Labor Day weekend.
