Ponca City Now - March 24, 2015 8:43 am

City Manager Craig Stephenson praised the Ponca City Police Department’s Special Project Unit Monday night, reporting the unit has arrested 43 individuals since Feb. 1 on 109 felony charges and 44 misdemeanor charges.

The unit has seized seven firearms; four vehicles — including a limo; and $11,650 in cash, Stephenson said.

"While this is alarming, it does show that they are making an impact on this part of society that can ruin so many lives," Stephenson said. "The plan is to keep the peddle to the metal on this societal issue."

Stephenson presented the update during Monday’s City Commission meeting.
