Police have raised concerns that children a small Perthshire town are regularly abusing alcohol.
Police reported several teenagers following the crackdown
An anti-social behaviour crackdown in Crieff led to more than 50 litres fortified wine, spirits, beer and cider being seized from youngsters.
Officers also handed out 10 fixed penalty notices for offences including drinking in the street as well as urinating in public places.
Several teenagers have also been reported to the procurator fiscal.
Crieff-based constable Michael Greshon said that although the operation had been successful, it had also highlighted a problem with children regularly abusing alcohol.
"Alcohol abuse amongst juveniles is a problem facing our local communities," he said.
"Incidents of vandalism, disorderly behaviour, crimes of violence and even serious crime often follow as a result of the misuse of alcohol by youths."
He added: "While under the influence of alcohol, they put themselves in considerable personal danger, which may affect their health giving rise to potentially life-threatening health issues like alcohol poisoning and alcoholism."
Following the crackdown, one drunken 17-year-old boy was reported to the Procurator Fiscal for a vandalism, a 16-year-old girl was reported for a breach of the peace and a 16-year-old boy was taken into custody drunk and incapable.
Plea to parents
Officers also found a 17-year-old boy in possession of a controlled drug, an 18-year-old man was reported for vandalising a car.
Three teenage girls found themselves the subject of child concern reports for their drinking.
And two men were reported to the fiscal for supplying alcohol to people under the age of 18.
Constable Greshon also called on parents to properly deal with their children coming home drunk.
He added: "Much of the alcohol consumed by children is taken from the home.
"I would also ask that members of the public who witness underage drinking or who may be approached by youths to purchase alcohol on their behalf, contact us in order that action can be taken."
