Nebraska State Patrol troopers arrested 76 suspected drunk drivers during a special two-week enforcement campaign that ended on Labor Day.

The patrol says it also issued 20 citations for minor in possession, 54 citations for open container, 93 for driving under suspension, 427 seat belt citations and warnings and 2,064 citations for speeding. One trooper made a stop that led to the seizure of more than 66 pounds of marijuana and the arrest of two people from Arizona.

A $27,000 grant from the Nebraska Office of Highway Safety helped pay for the special enforcement.
