Clewiston Police Activity This Week

Six Cited For Underage Alcohol Sales

CLEWISTON, FL. -- Police Police Chief Don Gutshall reports: that Officers working with Beverage Agents made test buys for underage alcohol sales at all Clewiston alcohol sales establishments. On March 30, six local establishments sold alcohol illegally and the persons selling alcohol were issued a Notice to Appear for their violations.

The Clewiston News reports arrests were made at the Clewiston Inn, Beef O'Brady's and Happy Chef Diner for under age sales. The Florida Division of Alcoholic Beverage & Tobacco says they arrested Linda L. Mann, 66 or Lake Placid at the Happy Chef and issued a summons for her to appear in Hendry court on May 14.

The Clewiston Chief of Police Gutshall did not respond to a request for more information on the five individuals it cited for illegal alcohol sales.

Clewiston Officers assisted other agencies, including the Hendry Sheriff with a Marijuana grow house on Alverdez earlier in the week and the Clewiston PD participated in a statewide unused medication roundup. More than 1000 various pills were confiscated and turned in to evidence to await a destruct order.

Sergeant Beatty gave a presentation to the students at Kings Academy Christian School.

The dry weather is really stressing the wild animals. Animal Control officers picked up a duck, opossum, squirrel, two raccoons and two snakes in addition to the normal gaggle of dogs and cats. Animal Control’s normal monthly pickup and call totals have been steadily climbing, spurred mostly by calls in Montura.

A brief synopsis of the week’s activity: 976 Commercial / Residential Security Checks, 511 Complaints Investigated, 13 Criminal Arrests, 85 Merchant Escorts, 13 Alarms Responded To, 6 Traffic Accidents Investigated

    Thank you to Clewiston PD for their police detail during Operation Medicince Cabinet on March 31st at K&M Drug in Clewiston. Drug Free Hendry County appreciates its partner agencies helping to reduce substance abuse among youth in Hendry County.

    We are also very pleased to see that most establishments follow the law, but count it unforunate that some establishments choose to put our youth in danger.
