Special Operation to Catch Under-aged Drinking


In a special operation by undercover and uniformed officersof the Thibodaux Police Department, officers issued fifty-five summonses in afour-hour period in downtown Thibodaux the night of August 19 and early morninghours of August 20. 

This operation was due to the increased number ofunder-aged drinking reported at establishments in Thibodaux.  This drinking is usually the result of “fake” or borrowedidentifications, older people making purchases for under-aged friends, etc. 

Of these fifty-five summonses, 38 were issued forunder-aged drinking, or possession of alcoholic beverage by person undertwenty-one years of age.  Seventeensummonses were issued for violation of the open container law. 

There were also two arrests made for purchase of alcohol onbehalf of a person under twenty-one and one arrest for possession of LSD andKlonipin. 

The subjects issued the summonses for under aged drinkingor possession must register with the police department, pay a fifty-dollarregistration fee and attend a class concerning their violation and dangers ofalcohol consumption.  These classesare usually held once a month on a Saturday. If on a second offense, a one hundred dollar registration fee iscollected and another class attendance is needed.  Upon the receipt of a third or additional summonses, theperson must appear in City Court. 

The open container violation, first offense, is a fine andcourt costs totaling $87.50.
