Sheriff’s Report, Feb. 17-19, 2016
Several juveniles were given referrals after Summit County Sheriff’s deputies responded to an underage party where alcohol was being served in the Jeremy Ranch neighborhood on Valentine’s Day.
While responding to a welfare check in the area, deputies received a tip about an underage party, according to Detective Kacey Bates. Deputies responded to the home and found several juveniles who had been drinking.
The parents were contacted and the juveniles were released to their custody, the report states. The referrals were made subsequent to the filing of the report, Bates said.
Bates said the Sheriff’s Office hasn’t received any reports of underage parties in "quite some time." The bust of an underage party in 2013 sparked outrage from parents who questioned the tactics of the Sheriff’s Office.
"It has been a long time since we had a report of juvenile party that has resulted in referrals and parents being contacted," Bates said.
