A 22-year-old Loganville man was charged with keeping a disorderly house and furnishing, purchasing and possession of alcohol after an underage drinking party was broken up by police at his home in Huntington Ridge in Loganville on New Year’s Eve. A 17 and an 18-year-old woman also were charged with furnishing, purchasing and possession of alcohol in the same incident. According to the Loganville Police report, the potential illegal drinking was reported when someone dropping off a 15-year-old noticed “illegal drinking and drug activity” going on with no parent in sight. Police arrived to find several illegally parked vehicles and when they entered the home, several juveniles ran out the back door into the woods. An officer followed and was subsequently locked out of the home when the back door was slammed shut and locked. The officers were eventually let in and reported a free flow of alcohol and the smell of marijuana. The juveniles who were present were tested for alcohol with just one testing positive. Several tow trucks were called in to tow the vehicles, prompting some of the juveniles to appear from the woods when the tow trucks arrived. Police report that some confessed to having a “sip” of alcohol and one juvenile appeared “heavily” intoxicated. The juveniles were all turned over to their parents and the 22-year-old and 17 and 18-year-old women were given citations for the charges.
