Huron PD gets warrant, busts door down to nab underage drinkers

Huron police had to obtain a search warrant to break up an underage drinking party at a Berlin Road home last week.

Charged with underage consumption were four boys — ages 17 to 14 — and Brady Freeman, 18, of Huron; Lauren Kenaley, 18, of Berlin Heights; and Deonte Carter, 19, of Huron.

Carter was also charged with possession of drug paraphernalia, while three of the boys were also charged with obstructing official business.

The 16-year-old boy whose family owns the home was also charged with six counts of allowing underage consumption. His mother was out of state, the report said, so he was taken to the Erie County Detention Center.

Officers went to the area at about 1:30 a.m. Sept. 17 after receiving a report of some teens kicking cars in a parking lot. The officers arrived and saw some teens near a home in the 500 block of Berlin Road.

When officers approached the house they smelled alcohol, but the teens inside refused to open the door, the report said. Through an open bathroom window officers saw cans of Busch Light — apparently enough for them to obtain a search warrant from Huron Municipal Court Judge Bill Steuk.

At about 3 a.m. officers knocked again, and when no one answered they busted down the door. They found six teens hiding under insulation in the attic and four others in a closet.
