Pot, alcohol and gensing possession all part of weekend ticket summary at Starved Rock

Posted by wlpo on September 6, 2016

As expected, Conservation Police stayed busy during the Labor Day weekend.

Sgt. Phil Wire says they handed out 42 park violations which include having alcohol and being off trails. Twenty fishing tickets were written up along with two tickets for dove hunting violations. Fourteen tickets were dished out for pot or paraphernalia while ten boaters were ticketed.

Wire’s summary also includes six tickets for gensing violations. The plant is protected at the park and it’s against the law to go out picking gensing along the trails.

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
