Patrols from the Muscogee County Sheriff's Office, the Harris County Sheriff's Office, the Muscogee Marshal's Office and the Georgia State Patrol issued more than 300 citations during an operation to cut down on speeding and aggressive driving on J.R. Allen Parkway.
Muscogee County Sheriff John Darr said officers made 11 arrests and recovered some stolen property during the 24-hour operation, which began at 3 p.m. Thursday and ended today.
Darr said they decided to organize the operation after getting complaints from citizens about speeding and aggressive driving on J.R. Allen.
"Hopefully, our efforts will remind citizens to obey traffic laws," he said.

In the first 12 hours, patrols issued 312 traffic citations and arrested 11 people. Officers also recovered a stolen pistol. At one stop made in Harris County, in conjunction with the Harris County Sheriff's Office's K-9 unit, officers made an arrest for trafficking in cocaine.
Darr said he would know the results of the second 12 hours of the operation by Monday.
