On 07/29/2012 at around 1450hrs CPL. Snyder made contact with two subjects who were sitting on the south side of Carroll Creek under the mural bridge within Carroll Creek Linear Park. Upon making contact he could not determine if the subjects had alcohol. He advised both of them that if they had alcohol that City ordinance did not allow for alcohol in City Parks. CPL. Snyder further advised both subjects, that if they were caught with alcoholic beverages in the future that they would be arrested.
