Recent teen parties a cause for concern, Sheriff’s Department says

The Encinitas Sheriff’s Department recently sent out a letter to Canyon Crest Academy parents notifying them that the Sheriff’s Department has received several calls recently involving teen parties being held in vacant homes. The notification read as follows:

“In recent weeks the Sheriff’s Department has responded to calls for service involving large teen parties.  The parties are located in vacant homes.  These parties involve underage drinking and drug use.  Two of the parties involved more than 200 teens and when deputies arrived, they scattered which caused a grave concern for the community and the welfare of the teenagers, many of whom were driving cars.

“The Sheriff’s Department would like to make you aware of this activity and they are enlisting your help in keeping our teenagers and the community safe from underage drinking and driving, alcohol and drug use, and all of the associated crime and activity.

“They are diligently working to prevent a recurrence of these types of parties which have also included huge financial losses for the home owners as a result of vandalism and theft to the properties themselves.

“The Sherriff’s Department will be enforcing all laws applicable in these situations.  Those laws include curfew, Social Host ordinances, driving under the influence, burglary, vandalism, and drug laws.

“They are seeking your help and ask that you notify the Sheriff’s Department if you or your child have any information regarding an upcoming party.  That information would include the location, the organizers, and any adults who are providing alcohol.  You can call the Encinitas Sheriff’s Stations at 760-966-3500 or contact the Sheriff’s Department anonymously at the Tip Hotline on our web page. https://www.tipsubmit.com/webtips.aspx?agencyID=409

“Thank you for your help in keeping our communities and children safe.  This message is provided courtesy of William D. Gore, Sheriff and Sherri Sarro, Captain of the Encinitas Sheriff’s Station.”
