A post-prom party in Saugerties landed a group of New Jersey teens in hot water.

Saugerties Police responded to a noise complaint on West Saugerties Road. The initial complaint was for loud music coming from a rental house approximately 1/2 mile away away from the complainants home.

While interviewing the complainant, officers could clearly hear the music. Officers located the source of the music a half mile away at 101 Manorville Road.

Investigating officers determined that the house had been rented to a group of high school students from Wallington, New Jersey High School for a post prom party.

Police further discovered that a number of students were consuming alcoholic beverages. Subsequently 34 students between the ages of 17-19 were charged under the the New York State Alcohol and Beverage Control Act with the violation of underage drinking.

All 34 students were processed and release on appearance tickets returnable to the Town of Saugerties Court.

Saugerties Police are continuing their investigation and further criminal charges are pending.
