Sheriff’s report: 10 teens caught with ‘large amount of beer’
A group of teenagers was busted with a large quantity of beer around 2 a.m. Thursday at a home under construction on Quarry Mountain Road, according to a report from the Summit County Sheriff’s Office, with most of the teens running from the deputies when they arrived on scene.
Deputies headed to the construction site after receiving a report of a group of juveniles making noise. When they arrived, eight of the 10 teens took off on foot. The two teens who did not flee cleaned up the mess and were released to their parents.
Another boy was located nearby a short time later, but fled again. He was eventually caught and released to his parents, but with a referral into the juvenile court system.
Deputies indicated they located the rest of the teens at several residences and notified their parents, and took a bike left at the scene and placed it into evidence at the Sheriff’s Office.
According to the Sheriff’s Office, law enforcement responded to several other calls between Monday, May 25, and Sunday, May 31, including several incidents of domestic violence and several Summit County Search and Rescue responses to vehicles that had become stuck.
