Susanville Police Arrest Two For Furnishing Alcoholic Beverages to Minors

Thursday, June 14th, 2018

The Susanville Police Department arrested two suspects Wednesday for furnishing alcoholic beverages to minors as part of a decoy ‘Shoulder Tap’ operation which targets adults who purchase alcohol for people under 21-years old.

Under the ‘Shoulder Tap’ program, a minor under the direct supervision of a peace officer, will stand outside a liquor or convenience store and ask patrons to buy them alcohol. The minor indicates in some way he or she is underage and cannot purchase the alcohol.

If the adults agree to purchase alcohol for the minor, officers then arrest and cite them for furnishing alcohol to the minor. The penalty for furnishing alcohol to a minor is a minimum $1,000 fine and 24-hours of community service.

The Susanville Police Department thanked the minor decoys who volunteered their time for this operation.

This project is part of the Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control’s Education and Teen Alcohol Enforcement Program Grant, funded by the California Office of Traffic Safety through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

      Thank you Jeremy! I just think the parents of teenagers should know who is purchasing alcohol for their kids.
