LANCASTER COUNTY, Pa. –  A tip from a school district administrator leads to the arrest of a Lancaster man on charges of selling liquor to minors.

In September 2016, an administrator at Lancaster Catholic High School contacted the Manheim Township Police after learning that there was an individual who was known to sell alcohol to minors. The suspect was not a student at the school.

Using this information, police conducted an investigation and identified the suspect as Nathan S. Rozell, 33 of Columbia Avenue, Lancaster. Police conducted an undercover operation and arranged to meet Rozell in a Manheim Township parking lot.

An undercover officer, who Rozell believed was 17 years old, gave money to Rozell who then went into a nearby liquor store and purchased Vodka. He then gave the Vodka to the undercover officer. Officers also witnessed Rozell selling Vodka and beer to two 17 year old males.

Rozell has been charged with two counts of Corruption of Minors, two counts of Furnishing Alcohol to Minors, and one count of Criminal Attempt at Furnishing Alcohol to Minors.
