On the 2nd of September, 2020, Sergeant Rooney Winters, decided to host a checkpoint at Market, near Market Ammunation, which is a very busy road and quite a lot vehicles are reported to be speeding in the Market area. Sergeant Winters gathered the units at LSPD, preparing for the checkpoint. Where, Trooper Dexter Kowalski was given the lead to organize the units and brief them about the checkpoint and what is the purpose of a traffic checkpoint.
Sergeant Winters, along with Trooper Clark Woods, placed the necessary barriers for a checkpoint at Market, and units were called at the location afterwards. Announcements were made on the Public Service Announcement and citizens were informed about the traffic checkpoint going on at Market, and that they must carry important documents with them.
Units were assigned on both the lanes, with one-two leaders for the units. Many citizens passing by the area were checked and their documents were also looked into. Every civilian was complying with the police respectfully, except one, who was detained and arrested later on.
The checkpoint went smooth for an hour long, and Sergeant Winters decided to end it, after the traffic was controlled well.
On 4th of September, 2020, Officer Charles McCane was scouting over the fields of San Andreas. He started from Flint County and found everything clear until after reaching Whetstone Mountains where he spotted a huge weed field in a pattern shape. Officer McCane called for backup over the radio and retreated to the nearest station. Many units responded as quick as possible, and gathered at the station. All the available units headed to the field and burnt the weed plants that were growing. The field was completely burnt out and the production stopped. No tangos were seen nearby.
Train Stuck at Idlewood
It was reported that a train stuck at the tracks near Idlewood Motel. It was completely blocking the Idlewood-Ganton road. State Police quickly responded to the situation, blocking the area, and keeping civilians away from the area. Mechanics and Engineers arrived at the area and firefighters from SAFMD responded to help the civilians inside the train. They brought them outside and checked inside for any other citizens stuck inside.
Mechanics spent a long time finding the problem and investigating it to replace the broken parts while units from SAPD were around talking to civilians and directing them away from the train. Area was completely secured and the parts were replaced with new ones. Governor Chuck Winters came to the scene and awarded the engineers and mechanics with a fixed amount for their tremendous job done. The train moved again and the area was cleared.
