Cohasset Police report finding teens partying it up at a Jerusalem Road house around 11 p.m. yesterday:
Upon arrival, officers observed a gathering of approximately 20 underage youths who were allegedly disregarding state-mandated social distancing and face covering protocols inside an enclosed small structure on the property. Open containers were found throughout the structure as well.
While officers were at the scene, several of the occupants began to flee into a nearby wooded area. Police attempted to identify those who remained present and contacted each of the juvenile’s parents to make arrangements to pick up their children.
Two adults on scene were identified as the homeowners and were given a $500 fine for violating the state's Covid-19-related ban on indoor gatherings of more than 10 people, police say.
WFXT reports that because of the party, students at the town's high school and middle school will be learning strictly remotely for the next two weeks.
