Large Beer Party Leads to Numerous Citations and Vehicles Being Towed

On Saturday evening at about 10:00 p.m. the Stanton County Sheriff’s office located what appeared to be a large underage alcohol drinking party at a residence on 843rd Road about seven miles northwest of Stanton.  The investigation resulted in about 40 minors being cited for Minor in Possession of Alcohol and the four party host were cited for Aiding and Abetting MIP.  Several youth ran from the location into nearby fields and about ten vehicles were towed from the scene and impounded after their operators refused commands to return to the residence.  A large quantity of alcoholic beverages were seized from the residence.  Those cited ranged in age from 15 to 20 and most were identified as students at Northeast Community College.  The Sheriff’s office wishes to remind everyone that underage drinking is illegal and will be strictly enforced by this  office.
