An officer on a call about a lost dog ended up arresting a teen for allegedly furnishing alcohol to minors. Ray Billy Bray, 18, of 3680 Smithonia Road, Crawford, was charged with possession of alcoholic beverages by persons below legal age.

According to the incident report, an officer had responded to Potts Mobile Home Park on Hwy. 29 South about a missing dog when the complainant pointed out a white Ford Explorer parked at a vacant lot and requested the officer check it out. He did and found Bray, a 15-year-old male and two 13-year old females. The officer noted that Bray had the odor of alcohol coming from his person and he reportedly admitted to drinking two beers. The 15-year-old was also arrested for underage drinking. The girls were returned to their mother.
