GRIFFITH | The Griffith-Highland-Munster police task force made five arrests during the past few days, the Griffith Town Council said Tuesday.
Griffith Police Chief Greg Mance said the task force has focused recently in Griffith, which resulted in the arrests.
Three of them were drug related and the other two were from traffic stops, Mance said.
Two of the arrests were with the help of Griffith's new police dog, Gino.
Mance said the task force stems from the Violence Reduction Grant recently received by Highland and shared with the two other towns.
