Police Cracking Down on Loitering
Barrington police are hearing complaints from businesses about loud music and loitering by teens and young adults.
Barrington police continue to crack down on loitering at town center businesses by teens and young adults.
The most recent incident occurred last Tuesday evening, Sept. 25, according to Barrington Police Chief John LaCross.
Vehicles were parked in the lot at the Rite Aid Pharmacy on County Road around 6 pm and playing loud music, LaCross said. The police dispatcher received complaints from nearby businesses.
Patrol Officer Marc Pimental responded to the pharmacy parking lot and asked the owners of the vehicles to leave the area. After some brief initial resistance, the parking lot was cleared, said LaCross.
LaCross said police officers have responded previously to complaints about loitering from Webster Bank, Dunkin’ Donuts and the Daily Scoop.
