On Nov. 30, the village of Los Lunas/Valencia County DWI program through the Local DWI (LDWI) grant funded an Underage Drinking Taskforce operation.

The Bosque Farms Police Department, Los Lunas Police Department and Los Lunas School Resource Officer participated in the operation.

Law enforcement agencies were assigned teams and designated to patrol throughout Valencia County with a concentration on any alcohol related problems/party calls.

During this operation, one person was arrested, and one citation was issued for driving on a revoked license, one speeding citation was issued, and another citation was issued for an open container.

Three citations were given to motorists for not having insurance, and another three were issued for other traffic violations.

The arrest resulted from a subject operating his motor vehicle while his license was revoked, requiring an interlock system, which driver did not have installed in his vehicle.

Additional enforcement efforts will continue throughout the holiday season.
