Alcohol seized from 12-year-olds at Drumcoo playing fields

POLICE have called for parents to “know where their children are” after officers seized alcohol from children as young as 12-years on Sunday night.

A post on PSNI Dungannon & South Tyrone Facebook page calling for parents to be aware of their children's whereabouts as they investigated reports of anti-social behaviour.

A Police spokesperson said on Facebook: "We received anti-social behaviour reports at the Drumcoo playing fields this evening.

"Whilst carrying out patrols a group of youths made off with bottles of alcohol in hand.

"Please know where your kids are because we don't want to come across them and have to deal with them.

"Side note, the mobile phone and bank card left behind by one of them is in the care of Dungannon officers. If it's yours, give us a private message or call 101 as we would love to return it too you and have a wee chat."

They added: "Some as young as 12 years of age are being found to have consumed alcohol and and are intoxicated which puts these children in a vulnerable position.

"Parents we need your help."
