Those charged include Jacob and Dimitry Sheynin, the alleged party hosts, who must go to court for maintaining a nuisance, a law enforcement official confirmed.
“It was a mixed bag of underage adults and juveniles holding the party,” the source told CLIFFVIEW PILOT. “The adult arrests were for possession of [drugs]. The rest were released at the scene pending further investigation, with possible charges pending for the alcohol.”
The previous party involved all juveniles on Kenneth Avenue. Although no one was taken into custody, complaints for violations of the borough’s underage drinking ordinance are being drawn up, a police source told CLIFFVIEW PILOT.
