Police Break-Up Alleged Underage Drinking Party

Police said 10 youths were caught with alcohol at a loud party on Tamarack Road early Friday.

Ten teenagers were issued infractions for possession of alcohol by a minor on private property after police responded to a report of a loud party at 15 Tamarack Road at 1:20 a.m., Friday, officials said.

Police said officers could hear "loud amplified sounds" from the residence, prompting them to investigate further and find the youths with the alcohol.

Infractions were issued to two 17-year-old youths who were not identified because of their age, a 19-year-old man, Cody Kellogg, of 18 Beaver Dam Road and seven 18-year-old youths: Barry Smith, of 13 Knollwood Drive; Dominick Tramontozzi, who lived at the residence; Hannah Basch-Gould, of 27 Gelding Hill Road; Ryan Zitnay, 18, of 58 Parmalee Road; Julian Tetreault, of 18 Old Bethel Road; Daniel O'Conner, of 8 Old Farm Road; and Alexandra Kirk, 5 Benjamin Drive.

I totally agree with you Jayne - far too much hypocrisy goes on around this issue, particularly in light of the incessant drinking over the legal limit I know that goes on here in Newtown. Surely it is far more dangerous for us parents to get behind the wheels of a car over the legal limit (and I am totally amazed at how often this occurs here) than it is for a few 17/18 year olds enjoying a few beers at a friends house? I am also from the UK, and whilst there are many many things we get wrong, the social stigma attached to drink driving (and consequent higher consideration for the law), and the more relaxed attitude we have towards teen drinking seem to be a far more sensible/appropriate balance than the reverse situation we have here in Newtown.

Jayne Long and Jo Ankers - Thank you for being nice and actually reasonable adults. You showed such class and stated your opinions(which I agree with) without being rude. It is really appreciated.

the fact that crap like this is posted on the internet on a forum inviting public shame upon named individuals, and the fact that all you self-righteous assholes actually come on here and take the time to comment on it is exactly why this town is awful and why I can't stand living here. -Nico Bonvini

Think someone that was at that house just died. If I were all of you, I'de move out of your little sheltered town. Teach your children to be tolerant, let them know that the police in Newtown are dirty, have personal vendettas, that bully's played a huge roll in the slaughtering of those children, pull up your pants. So the FUCK WHAT kids are drinking. Do you know the things that happen down the road from me in the bay area? Your all some fake white collar ass motherfuckers, and I hope god takes something precious from each and everyone of you
