A 17-year-old Tamaqua male has been cited for underage drinking.

Borough officer Matt Houser was on patrol at 12:20 a.m. Monday, Feb. 27, when he saw two males in the area of the Wells Fargo Bank on West Broad Street. Houser stopped to check on the males and immediately noted signs of intoxication from both. One of the males was 22 years old, while the other was 17.

The younger male was taken into custody and cited for underage drinking. He was later released to his father's custody.
