Minors charged at Campton Hills party

CAMPTON HILLS – A 20-year-old has been charged with social hosting after police broke up a party at her Campton Hills home and charged several minors with underage drinking, according to a Campton Hills police report.

Police responded to a party compliant in the 3N500 block of Curling Pond Court, Campton Hills, early on Aug. 15.

Officers reportedly heard people yelling and talking loudly in the backyard and saw numerous cars parked along both sides of the street. A 21-year-old man was passed out on the yard, which was strewn with beer cans, police reported.

After officers announced their presence, several teens reportedly ran inside, locked the rear door and turned off the lights. Others ran away from the area and couldn't be identified, police reported.

An officer reported using a flashlight to see into the kitchen – which was littered with beer cans and red plastic cups – and saw teens drinking.

Resident Jessica L. Stewart, 20, let police inside, police reported, noting about 25 people between the ages of 18 and 21 were there.

"Some had clearly been drinking, while others had not," an officer said in the report.

Arrangements were made for the sober attendees to drive the intoxicated subjects home, police reported.

Stewart reportedly was charged with social hosting.

Seven minors were charged with underage drinking: Alexandra K. Blair, 18, of the 11N100 block of Flagpole Court, Elgin; Ethan David Byk, 19, of the 500 block of Madison Drive, Buffalo Grove; Collin J. Dunne, 20, of the 39W800 block of Prunetree Lane, St. Charles; Adobe Alina Lockwood, 18, of the 0-100 block of Lilac Court, South Elgin; Patrick J. Smith, 20, of the 2200 block of Brookwood Drive, South Elgin; Justin W. Smith, 19, of the 38W100 block of Henricksen Road, St. Charles; and Michael A. Claney, 21, of the 3N700 block of Hawthorn Drive, St. Charles. Claney was 20 at the time of the incident.
