Car Stop Leads to Six MIP Arrests and One Arrest for Hosting

On 5/14/11, Officers stopped a car for a traffic infraction in the area of I-35 and 75th Street. When Officers contacted the occupants, the odor of an alcoholic beverage was detected. Further investigation led to five arrests for Minor in Possession of Alcohol and information about a graduation party where minors were being allowed to drink alcohol.

Officers responded to 13100 block of England to follow up on the information regarding the party. Upon arrival, Officers found the information to be credible. After an investigation at the location, an additional MIP arrest was made as well as an arrest for hosting.

This is an example of great police work and a reminder for all those who are about to have graduation parties; do not allow underage people to consume alcohol at your home.

One of the MIP arrests will be charged through the Johnson County District Attorney’s Office. The remaining MIP’s and the Hosting case will be charged through city court.
