On March 30, 2021, at 10:00PM, officers were clearing out Bellview Front St. due to the carnival ending. While doing so, they encountered a very large group of unruly juveniles on First St. The juveniles, who were all unaccompanied by parents or guardians, were blocking the streets, shouting profanities, and at times were challenging the police officers. Several residents exited their homes due to the disturbances being caused by the juveniles. They were all warned numerous times to quit yelling profanities and to get out of the road while waiting for their rides to pick them up. Officers came into contact with two juveniles who continued yelling profanities at the police officers, so they were placed under arrest. They were both booked at the Berwick Police Department and were both released to their parents pending juvenile court proceedings.

Chief Leonard would like to remind parents that these events such as the Carnival, are being put together to give our citizens an opportunity to bring their families out during this spring break holiday to have safe family fun.  We will not tolerate the behavior of a few to ruin this.
