The Verona Police Department said today that it broke up a party with underage drinking and charged the homeowner with providing alcohol to minors.

According to the VPD, on Friday, April 8, officers responded to a noise complaint Willow Terrace. They observed a large group of juveniles walking in the area and multiple vehicles leaving it. The officers determined that an underage party was happening at one of the home and that the home’s owner had made her residence available to her 16-year-old daughter and her friends so that they could consume alcohol.

The homeowner was charged with violating New Jersey statute 2C:33-17B, which prohibits purposefully or knowingly serving alcohol or making alcohol available to anyone under 21. If convicted, the homeowner faces up to six months in jail and $1,000 fine.

“The VPD is again reminding our residents that it is illegal to make your residence available to minors for the purpose to consume alcohol,” the police said in a statement. “This is the second time in less than 6 months that the VPD has criminally charged a homeowner with this offense.”
