to underage drinkers
Nearly 70 citations were issued in Lawrence last weekend for violations of alcohol beverage laws, the Kansas Department of Revenue said.
On Aug. 25 and Aug. 26, Alcoholic Beverage Control agents issued the 67 citations mainly for minors in possession of alcohol at parties or on the streets, officials said.
Agents also worked in Manhattan on Aug. 18 and Aug. 19, issuing 66 citations, officials said.
"ABC has stepped up its efforts toward underage drinking," ABC Director Robert Longino said. "The numbers in these two communities reflect only a small percentage of underage persons consuming alcohol products. We probably would have issued more citations in Lawrence, but the Aug. 25 evening rain forced a lot of parties to break up."
