Police bust drinking party with 70 youths

Police arrested the alleged host of an underage drinking party with up to 70 young people in attendance early on November 19.

According to police, officers received an anonymous tip via the internet shortly after midnight. Police went to a White Plains Road home and confirmed a large gathering of persons under age 21 that were drinking alcohol.

Konrad Nevers, 21, who is officially listed as living in Suffield, was arrested as the host of the party. Connecticut’s hosting law makes it illegal for anyone in control of a residence to permit minors to consume alcohol on the premises.

When officers arrived at the home after receiving the tip, they found up to 70 young people in and around the home who began to flee. Police made contact with numerous minors and most identified themselves as students at Sacred Heart University. Police stood by as the attendees all arranged for rides.

Nevers told police he lives at the home and was identified as being related to the owners. Police located evidence of a drinking party inside the residence. Nevers released at the scene on a promise to appear in court November 28. Trumbull Police will additionally follow up with this incident by notifying the university and the homeowner.

Police said anyone concerned about underage drinking or any other illegal activity they wish to report anonymously should to tipsoft.com and select their city/town from the list.
