Underage drinkers beware
Local law enforcement officers are teaming up to combat underage drinking in the parish with a series of enforcement strategies.
Lincoln Parish Sheriff Mike Stone said sheriff's deputies, Ruston Police officers and agents of the State Office of Alcohol and Tobacco Control (ATC) will be out in force, beginning Saturday, looking for underage drinkers. The officers will conduct surveillance of retail establishments watching for underage persons buying alcohol. Deputies and ATC agents will also periodically check bars for underage drinkers, Stone said.
