Somewhere the party will be a little drier this week.
The Fuerza Pública said it confiscated 4,260 bottles or cans of alcoholic beverages in the first 23 days of December.
In Barrio el Carmen de Corredores police confiscated 96 cans of beer that they encountered on a bus. Also there were two liters of whiskey.
Then in El Rodeo in Paso Canoas police found a woman driving a vehicle in which there were 30 cases of beer and 24 bottles of rum.
The alcohol is believed to have come from Panamá where prices are lower. Police also have similar problems at the northern border.
