(KMOV) – Police in Chesterfield cited 24 underage teens at a party in a small apartment complex in Chesterfield off Schoettler Valley.
“We are not a college town so we don’t get the big, large college parties,” said Lt. Mike Thompson of the Chesterfield Police Department. “This is kind of rare.”
Thompson says his biggest concern is when that many people are drinking in such a small place, anything can happen.
Police were notified of the party when a neighbor called and complained about the noise and that everything was becoming too rowdy. The party occurred April 27.
During the incident, police issued 24 citations. The party was being hosted by college students in town from Logan University and Maryville University.
Police say underage drinking parties in this area are not very common.
