The Stanislaus County Sheriff's Department, through a grant funded by the California State Department of Alcohol Beverage Control, participated in a general enforcement operation at the" KAT Country 103 FM Listeners Appreciation Concert" on Saturday that resulted in 20 arrests for underage drinking.
During a seven-hour operation deputies from the Stanislaus County Sheriff's Department and Agents from the California Department of Alcohol Beverage Control contacted numerous individuals consuming alcohol, to determine if they were of legal age. Twenty individuals were arrested for being underage in possession of alcohol or furnishing a minor with alcohol.
The sheriff’s department released a statement in their news release saying: “KAT Country works very hard to ensure that minors are not provided alcohol at their annual concert and they provide a safe and secure environment for everyone who attends. Despite their efforts, there are still those who find a way to violate the law by consuming alcohol as a minor or provide alcohol to minors.”
This is part of the ongoing effort by the Stanislaus County Sheriff's Department and the California Department of Alcohol Beverage Control to promote safety in our community and enforce laws regarding the underage consumption of alcohol.
