YOU READ IT HERE FIRST: A Washington Township police officer summoned to a local liquor store on a call of an underage teen trying to buy alcohol got a shock when another walked in and tried the same thing.

He was also carrying marijuana, authorities said.

The teen was one of no fewer than a half-dozen would-be customers sniffed out by store this weekend, Officer Heather Castronova told CLIFFVIEW PILOT tonight.

“A majority of them are male and from Ridgewood,” she said.

The store owner also called police six times in a four-hour span after being shown questionable IDs, Castronova said.

“You would have thought the word would have spread from what took place [last weekend],” the officer said, referring to complaints against Township Liquor and the arrest of a 17-year-old boy trying to buy booze.

The store turned over a half-dozen bogus Maryland driver’s licenses and “obtained a machine to verify the validity of any driver’s license used to provide proof of a person’s age when attempting to purchase an alcoholic beverage,” Police Chief Glenn Hooper said last week.
