The Verona Police Department, based at the corner of Bloomfield Avenue and Gould Street, disclosed yesterday that they broke up a party on Gould Street in late September that allegedly involved underage drinking.

According to the VPD, during the evening of Saturday, September 24, officers went to a residence on Gould after a reported noise complaint. They said they discovered a “juvenile party” involving alcohol there. As a result, 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. The homeowner now has a date before Verona Municipal Court and, if convicted, faces up to six months in jail and a $1,000 fine.

“This is the third incident in less than a year where a homeowner was charged with this offense,” the VPD posted on Facebook. “We urge parents to be responsible, and not make their homes available to children for the purpose of consuming alcohol.”
