Washington Parish Sheriff’s Office and Bogalusa Police Department Crack Down on Underage Drinking

On February 28th, the Washington Parish Sheriff’s Office, in collaboration with the Bogalusa Police
Department, conducted a targeted operation aimed at curbing underage drinking within the community.

The Juvenile Underage Drinking Enforcement (JUDE) operation saw law enforcement deputies and officers visit a total of 13 establishments across Washington Parish. Of these, 9 were found to be in compliance with regulations pertaining to the sale of alcohol to minors.

Sheriff Randy “Country” Seal expressed gratitude towards the compliant establishments, acknowledging their commitment to upholding laws safeguarding youth from the dangers of underage drinking. Among the commendable businesses are Bogalusa Powerball, C Store, Discount Store #2, General Dollar Store on Avenue F, CVS in Bogalusa, Wal-Mart, Walgreens, JZ Quick Stop, and Varnado Texaco.

However, the operation also revealed areas of non-compliance. Four establishments were found to have sold alcohol to minors, including the Chevron at Marshall Richardson Road, Chevron at Varnado, Main Street Grocery, and JR Food Mart.

This operation underscores the joint efforts of law enforcement and local businesses to promote responsible alcohol sales practices and protect the well-being of young individuals within the community.
