Two women face charges
A group of minors taking part in an underage drinking party at 181 Creepy Lane, just off of Route 880, in Limestone Township during the early morning hours of July 30 were caught off-guard when state troopers suddenly arrived on the scene, according to court records filed at the office of District Judge Jerry C. Lepley.
At least four juveniles in the group had consumed alcoholic beverages, and police soon learned that the beverages had been provided by Susan C. Thomas, 36, of 360 Noltee Hill Road, Jersey Shore, investigators alleged in an affidavit.
Hours before the troopers made their surprise visit, Thomas brought to the property 13 beers and two malt beverages, police alleged. The beverages were consumed at the home when there was no adult supervision, police said. Thomas has been charged with the misdemeanor of furnishing alcohol to minors and is free on $1,500 bail.
In another case handled by Lepley, when Tiadaghton Valley Regional police arrived at a home in the 100 block of Broad Street in Jersey Shore to investigate a possible domestic disturbance about 10:30 p.m. on Nov. 15, Tiadaghton Valley Regional police found “a heavily intoxicated” teenage girl, who had preliminary blood test that revealed she had a blood-alcohol content level of .13, according to an affidavit.
Through their investigation, police learned that Mapuana Moana Agae-Naipo, 28, of 1308 Allegheny Ave., Jersey Shore, was the one who allegedly gave alcoholic beverages to the teen, the affidavit stated. Charged with one count of furnishing alcohol to a minor, the woman is free on $1,500 bail.
