Underage drinking party busted in Page County/ Theft and burglary reported


March 12th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

The Page County Sheriff’s Department reports two people were cited for being persons under legal age Saturday night, following an investigation into a party in the Pierce Creek area. 18-year olds Sean Holland, of Malvern and Zachary Leland Keene, of Glenwood, were cited. Two juveniles were also referred to Juvenile Court Services on charges of drinking under the legal age. The juveniles were released to the custody of their parents. Four containers of alcohol were seized during the investigation into the incident in the 1300 Block of A Avenue in Page County. 

Page County Sheriff Lyle Palmer says also, a theft and burglary were reported to his office recently. A Clarinda resident told authorities someone stole two tractor batteries from his International Model 1466 tractor. The tractor was located inside a shed on the outskirts of College Springs. It’s not clear when the batteries were taken. They were last known to have been in the tractor when the first snow fell this season. 

And, a Coin man told the Sheriff’s Department someone entered a garage and a storage building on a property he oversees on or about March 4th. Entry to the structures was gained by cutting off a lock clasp to each door. An inventory was being conducted to determine which items were missing, but an initial assessment determined tools, a tool box and footlocker were taken. The items were valued at about $400.
