A 13-year-old year Hartland student may be responsible for consuming alcohol and having other stolen items from school and neighboring houses and cars, according to Livingston County Sheriff Bob Bezzotte.
On May 20, a 911 call was placed to the Livingston County Sheriff's department by the teenager’s father, according to Bezzotte. The father had woken up to the sounds of his son walking around the house around 2 a.m.
“The father called and indicated his son was intoxicated and had items in this bedroom that didn’t belong to him,” Bezotte said.
Several bottles of liquor, cigarettes, credit cards and iPods were among some of the items discovered in the teenager's bedroom that are believed to be stolen from his neighbors, according to Bezotte. One iPod was later discovered to have been stolen from the locker room of the .
After given a breathalyzer, the 13-year-old blew a .67, which indicated he had drank large amounts of alcohol, according to Bezotte.
“The officer could tell he had been consuming alcohol based on the odor, his gait, the way he was conducting himself," Bezotte said of the officer's accounting of the interview with the minor.
The teenager was never taken into custody, but released to his parents and will be petitioned to juvenile court for various violations.
Since the iPod is believed to have come from the Hartland Middle School, there could be some school ramfications as well, accoridng to Bezotte.
