Seized booze to be auctioned off

Money raised will go into the public purse.

BOOZE seized by police in Honiton from under-age drinkers and those drinking in alcohol-free zones is to be auctioned off and the money raised put in the public purse.

A specialist auction house has been appointed to deal with the sale.

Police say they are working hard to reduce drink-related anti-social behaviour in the town.

AN under-age male is currently being investigated for persistently possessing alcohol, Sergeant Martin Burrow has told the Midweek Herald.
