A 19-year-old Katonah resident faces first-degree charges of unlawfully dealing with a child after allegedly being found serving alcohol to minors in his Jay Street home.
Bedford police responded at 9:52 p.m. on Sept. 30 to a noise complaint from on Jay Street, phoned in by a neighbor who also complained of a suspicious vehicle on the street.
When they arrived, police said they found a group of youths ages 15 - 18, having a party and drinking. Officers reported seeing bottles of Budweiser beer and open bottles of liquor in plain view. At least seven youths were detained by police and picked up by their parents from the home.
The man charged also faces two violations under New York's ABC laws, for possessing alcohol under the age of 21 and providing it to underage drinkers.
