MUNCIE -- A Indiana State Excise Police pilot program has brought increased attention to the underage drinking problems caused by those attending Ball State University or those partying on or near campus.

Since its inception on Feb. 6, the Intensified College Enforcement -- or ICE -- program has already resulted in more than 70 excise police citations -- and citations at three businesses -- in Muncie.

Cpl. Travis Thickstun, public relations officer with the Indiana State Excise Police, said Friday it was too early to completely analyze the new program -- which is also being tested on the campuses of Indiana and DePauw universities -- but thought the effort was having a positive impact so far.
