Teens party in foreclosed home, three arrested
By Kelly Shackleton
Yoknapatawpha County Sheriff’s officers responding to a disturbance call arrested three teenagers on multiple charges Tuesday night.
At about 11:00 p.m., the Sheriff’s Department was notified that several people were causing a disturbance at an unoccupied house in the 200 block of Sivley Street in Oxford.
Officers detained eight people at the scene, including five minors. All reside nearby and claimed to have the permission of the property owner to be there. Court records show the property is owned by Bancorp South.
A 17-year-old male was arrested on charges of underage possession of alcohol and public intoxication. A 17-year-old female was arrested for obstructing a police officer. A 16-year-old male was arrested for possession of small amounts of marijuana and ketamine.
The other minors were released to the custody of their parents.
The Sheriff's Department reports the residence sustained only minimal damage, but said additional charges against all involved are pending.
