HANCOCK - The town's police department responded to 160 calls in August, according to a report presented Wednesday by Police Chief Steven L. McCarty.

McCarty said the department arrested seven adults and four juveniles.

Two people were charged with driving under the influence.

Officers gave out 31 traffic citations and 47 warnings. Out of 78 traffic stops, 21 were for complaints of loud stereo speakers, McCarty said.

Officers also gave out 130 parking tickets, resulting in $1,099 in fines.

McCarty said a 1983 Ford pickup truck that was seized because of a drug offense was sold at an auction for $200 on Aug. 20. Only one person bid on the truck.

McCarty also reported that the department received a $1,600 grant from the Washington County Community Partnership for Children & Families. The money will help pay for a youth dance this fall and a pool party next June.
