OROVILLE, Calif. - The Oroville Police Department said during an operation on April 2, it cited and arrested people for various alcohol consumption charges.

Oroville Police, along with the California Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC) through the Alcohol Policing Partnership Program, performed the operation on Thursday after they say they noticed people failing to social distance and were gathering in front of businesses.

Police and ABC agents wrote citations and arrested people at both the AM/PM gas station on Oro Dam Boulevard and the Food Express on Montgomery Street.

Three subjects were cited for drinking in public, two were arrested for public intoxication, one was cited for a warrant and one subject was arrested on CDCR Parole violations and weapon charges, during the operation.

Compliance checks were also done at several city businesses, according to police, and while most were following the guidelines put in place by Governor Gavin Newsom and ABC, police say it was noted what business had people gathering in front.
