Underage drinking party busted

SIKESTON, MO (KAIT) Sikeston Public Safety busts an underage drinking party late Saturday night.  Around 11:30 p.m., DPS received information of a teenage party occurring at 805 Sikes Street. Upon arrival, police officers attempted to contact some teens in the driveway but the teens ran inside the home as the officers approached. The owner of the house came to the door and spoke with the officers.

A search of the home found several teens hiding in a bedroom and closet. Officers also fouled both full and empty containers of alcohol around the  pool area of the home. While searching, another subject was seen running from the area. Officers began pursing them after he refused to comply with orders to stop.

The subject was apprehended a short time later.  Police soon began testing all the teens with a portable breath tester. Several of the subjects tested positive for blood alcohol content and were arrested. In all, five of the approximately eight subjects were arrested for illegal consumption and possession.

One subject also had charges of resisting arrest for fleeing from police during the bust. They were all taken to DPS Headquarters for booking. Police are still investigation how the teens obtained the alcohol and whether the home owner was aware of the illegal party.
