Darien Police on Thursday night cited a 16-year-old New Canaan girl for possession of alcohol.
At about 9:24 p.m. on April 12, officers responded to the area of Allwood Road on a report of youths throwing bottles from a vehicle, police said.
There, officers found a vehicle occupied by four female juveniles from New Canaan, according to a police report.
The vehicle belonged to one of the passengers in the car, the report said, but she could not drive because she’d been drinking alcohol. Following an investigation, police also found that the same passenger was in possession of a backpack containing several bottles of an alcoholic beverage, it said.
That passenger was cited for the infraction offense.
All of the girls were released to their parents’ custody.
