California: Modified Car Sting Nets Thousands in Tickets
Street racing sting generates thousands of dollars in modified car tickets for Ontario, California police.

Police
Forty police from several area police departments and the California Highway Patrol trapped automobile enthusiasts around 1am Saturday on the 5000 block of Airport Drive in the city of Ontario. Police blocked off all potential exits on the road, trapping more than 150 motorists for more than an hour, regardless of whether they had done anything wrong.

Police searched the vehicles and interrogated drivers looking to issue tickets worth $1000-3000 each and the chance to impound a car. The sting generated 50 emissions citations, and 50 for other violations with 15 cars being impounded because the drivers had a suspended license. Another 50 juveniles were arrested for being outside after 10pm.
