    [font=geneva,arial,sans-serif]PORTSMOUTH, N.H. -- The long arm of the law may be ringing your doorbell and holding a pizza. [/font]

    [font=geneva,arial,sans-serif]Police in Portsmouth hope to enlist pizza delivery people and hotel clerks to help cut into underage drinking and parents who allow it. [/font]

    [font=geneva,arial,sans-serif]Under a new law, it's illegal for the owner or occupants of a home or hotel room to host a gathering of five or more minors who are drinking or using drugs. Teens as young as 17 who throw a party could be tried as adults. [/font]

    [font=geneva,arial,sans-serif]Portsmouth Police Sergeant Mike Schwartz said the program is called the "Booze Bounty." He said food delivery people and hotel clerks would receive $50 if their anonymous tips of suspicious activity leads to the arrest of a party host.
