Underage drinking concerns in Dunblane
CONCERNS over under-aged drinking has been sparked after over ten litres of alcohol was confiscated from youths in the Dunblane area.
On Friday June 9 officers from Dunblane Police office carried out patrols in the Leighills and George Street areas of Dunblane and recovered 11 litres of alcohol which has now been disposed of.
Commenting on the find, Inspector Pat Scroggie said: "We believe the alcohol we recovered was for consumption by local youths which is a great concern. We have experienced anti-social behavior in the past due to youths who are under the influence of alcohol and this will not be tolerated.
"My officers will continue to patrol these areas and any underage person found in possession of alochol or persons found buying alcohol for them will be dealt with robustly. Incidents of vandalism increase at the weekends and we believe that alcohol consumption by certain groups is a factor and when you consider the potential health implications of underagers drinking alcohol this is clearly concerning.
"Parents have a responsibility for their children actions in the community and I would urge parents to be aware of what their children are up to when they are out of the house at the weekend . My officers will continue to patrol these areas at the weekends and any children involved will be returned to their homes."
