Police warn of use of fake IDs
According to Strabane police, there have been several instances where people have entered licensed establishments using bogus identification.
The use of a fake ID is fraud, they warn.
To fight the use of fraudulent IDs in the area, police say they are continuing to liaise with door staff and conduct inspections at licensed establishments in Derry City and Strabane.
They are admonishing that using a fake ID is fraud and that they have the authority to bring charges against anyone doing so.
Parents are urged to have a conversation with their underage children about this matter, the dangers of underage drinking, and the repercussions of using fraudulent identification to enter places that are licensed to serve alcohol.
