Omak PD Arrest 15-year-old for MIP

May 05, 2017

In the early morning hours of May 5th, an Omak Police Officer noticed a group of young people walking down Riverside Dr. and recognized a juvenile female who had a warrant.  He arrested the 15 yr. old female and also found her to be intoxicated. She admitted drinking whiskey and smoking marijuana but refused to say where she got the substances. Besides facing charges for the warrant she also faces Minor in Possession charges, which means she could spend time in Juvenile Detention, lose her drivers license, and pay fines.

Omak Police Officers continue to enforce underage drinking and marijuana use laws. They will be conducting alcohol and marijuana compliance checks in the next month and they will also continue emphasis patrols through the summer. They urge the community to please call 911 if you witness or suspect someone is providing illegal substances like alcohol, marijuana, and other drugs to minors, or a place for them to consume it.
