SPD: ID Scanners a Deterrent to Underage Drinking

The State Liquor Commission and the city of Gillette helped to provide four high-tech ID scanners for use at the street dance in Sheridan on Friday and Saturday during rodeo weekend.

Sheridan Police Department Lieutenant Chris Dahmke says there weren't many fake IDs encountered as a result.

But although the scanners served as a deterrent to the use of fake IDs by minors, there were some problems with the machines that may have contributed to even longer lines than usual.

He says there were a few minor in possession citations during the event, but overall, the street dance went fairly smoothly.
