Lansdale cops round up 34 in underage drinking bust

Posted: April 13, 2012

Police in Lansdale Borough have arrested 34 young people as part of a crackdown on loud, underage drinking parties, the department said today.

"We have never tolerated underage drinking, but this is one of our biggest underage arrests that I can recall in my 20 years with the department," said police Sgt. Alex Kromdyk.

Officers responded to the report of a noisy party on Friday, April 6, at 11:40 p.m. in the 200 block of Pennbrook Avenue, Lansdale, after neighbors complained of a disorderly gathering next door.

As police approached, partygoers began to flee, Kromdyk said.

Officers discovered a large number of minors who they said had consumed alcohol, including beer and rum.
