SEASIDE - Seaside police found the second weekend of spring break quieter than the first.
Seaside Police responded to only 66 calls for service between 5 p.m. Friday and 2 a.m. Monday. During the first week, they answered 75 calls.
"We were pleased to see the second weekend, which is typically the busiest, even quieter than the first," said Seaside Police Chief Bob Gross, who added that more families are coming to Seaside, and that appears to be reducing criminal activity.
On Friday, officers did respond to one underage drinking party where six minors were cited for minor in consumption. Overall the weekend saw 12 minors cited for minor in possession/consumption of alcohol. One person was arrested for misrepresentation of age by a minor after employees of Girtles discovered a 19-year-old female using someone else's identification.
In addition three people were arrested for third-degree theft, two on warrants, one for driving while intoxicated, two for noncriminal detoxification and two for disorderly conduct.
Alcohol is not permitted on the beach until the conclusion of spring break April 5.
