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.

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.
