Blotter: Loud party shut down

Comments () A Text Size

Denton police busted a party after loud music was reported shortly after 1 a.m. Friday at a residence in the 3400 block of Country Club Road.

When officers arrived, partygoers went inside and hid, according to police reports. An officer reported she could hear people inside yelling to be quiet when she knocked on the door.

Two residents — one of whom was 20 years old — finally came to the door, and the officer observed open alcohol containers scattered about the home.

After requesting for backup, officers conducted a sweep of the residence to gather all attendees into the living room. During the sweep, one of the officers observed drug paraphernalia in one of the bedrooms, police reports noted.

Anyone who wasn’t a resident of the home was asked to leave. One of the residents admitted to staying in the room where the drug paraphernalia was found. Officers did not find any other contraband.

The residents each received citations. The 20-year-old man was cited for possession of drug paraphernalia and minor in possession of alcohol. The other male resident received a citation for disorderly conduct for loud noise.

The drug paraphernalia was confiscated and will be destroyed, police said.
