Vacaville police officers arrested and cited two juveniles, including a 14-year-old girl, for possessing alcohol and tobacco late
Saturday night and early this morning.  The arrests were part of an operation aimed at proactively combating youth drinking. Between 8 p.m. Saturday and 1 a.m. today, officers from the Vacaville Police Department’s youth services section responded to reports of parties and patrolled areas where juveniles often congregate, including city parks and schools.  Police received several calls about a party in the 300 block of Bowline Drive with estimates of up to 100 youth attending. Police said that
when they arrived, there were about 60 youth who fled upon seeing the officers.  Several juveniles were stopped, and one 14-year-old girl was arrested for possessing alcohol and tobacco. She was issued a citation for both violations before being released to an adult, police said. Police stopped an additional 38 people throughout the evening, most of whom were minors. One girl was cited for tobacco possession, and a male was cited for a probation violation.  The operation was funded by a grant given by the Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control. Similar operations will continue in the future.  Anyone who suspects illegal activity is encouraged to call the 24-hour non-emergency number (707) 449-5200.
