South Side Blitz nets one arrest, 39 towed vehicles
One person was arrested and 39 vehicles were towed as Pittsburgh's South Side Enforcement Blitz continued over the weekend.
Twelve non-traffic citations and 149 traffic citations were issued on Friday and Saturday, the sixth weekend of Mayor Luke Ravenstahl's initiative to rid the South Side of troublemakers. There were 71 bar occupancy inspections by city police, firefighters and building inspectors, the mayor's office announced Monday.
Fifty-eight arrests have been made, 321 vehicles towed, 1,046 citations issued and 313 bar occupancy inspections conducted since the blitz began last month, according to figures supplied by Joanna Doven, Ravenstahl's spokeswoman.
