Five charged with underage drinking for Schaghticoke Fair


SCHAGHTICOKE, N.Y. - New York State Police say they have arrested five people for underage drinking in and around the Schaghticoke Fair.

Police say on September 1st an underage drinking initiative was conducted around the fair. No alcohol is sold on the fairgrounds, as organizers of the Schaghticoke Fair strive to promote a family atmosphere.

In support of this, undercover troopers patrolled in and around the fairgrounds advising fairgoers of the town of Schaghticoke's open container ordinance. Ultimately, five people between the ages of 17-20 were arrested for Possession of an Alcoholic Beverage by a Person Under 21. Additionally one person was arrested for Unlawful Possession of Marijuana.
