Indiana State Excise Police officers arrested 24 people during a tractor-and-truck pull in Tampico over the weekend.
Corporal Travis Thickstun, with Indiana State Excise Police, says the arrests happened at the annual tractor-and-truck pull and fish fry fundraiser for the Grassy Fork Volunteer Fire Department, which is located south of Brownstown on State Road 39.
Excise officers arrested 17 minors for illegal consumption or possession of alcohol, five of whom were less than 18 years of age.
Cpl. Thickstun says 20-year-old Caleb M. Goering, of Salem, was jailed on a preliminary charge of illegal possession of alcohol after he was caught a second time in possession of alcohol by two different excise officers two hours apart.
Three people were charged with providing alcohol to a minor and three juveniles were issued tickets for possession of tobacco.
One person was also arrested on a felony drug charge.
Twenty-eight-year-old Joseph G. Spencer, of Scottsburg, was jailed on a preliminary charge of possession of a controlled substance.
