Police have been tackling anti-social behaviour and criminal damage caused by youths in Garstang.
Operation Crank began on Friday, October 11 and will run until next Wednesday, November 6, covering both Halloween and Bonfire Night.
Its successes so far include a 12-year-old boy from Catterall, who was given a Youth Referral Order and had a laser pen seized after a resident reported the pen repeatedly being shone into their house, and a house party where underage drinkers were present, which was shut down and alcohol seized, following complaints.
Warnings have also been issued to young drivers causing harassment, nuisance and distress, and if any of those drivers receive a second warning, their vehicle will be seized.
A 16-year-old boy suspected of drugs-related offences was stopped and searched following an indication from a police drugs dog.
The boy was found to be possession of a quantity of cannabis and will have to engage with the Youth Offending Team.
PCSO John Holland said: “Residents in Garstang have raised a number of concerns recently about the behaviour of some young people in the area.
“Due to this, we have been running this operation to combat these concerns quickly as we take the concerns of our residents very seriously and want Garstang and the surrounding area to be an enjoyable place to live.
“However, it is important we do not demonise all young people because of the actions of a small minority.
“Garstang needs to be an enjoyable place for everyone, whatever their age, as long as they are enjoying themselves legally, responsibly and in ways that do not affect the enjoyment of others.”
The operation has also received funding from the Lancashire Partnership Against Crime (LANPAC) to produce posters and leaflets for local Trick or Treaters and residents in the run-up to Halloween.
