Sweet 16 Party Raided By Police
A Sweet 16 party in Far Rockaway was cut short, earlier this month, when police responded to noise complains and rounded up at least 54 people - adults and juveniles - at an abandoned house on Lewmay Road.
"Somebody reported a loud noise and trespassing [in an abandoned house]," a police source said about the March 21 incident.
Eleven adults, who were found to have outstanding warrants, were arrested; 14 juveniles were checked for priors and released to their parents; and 29 received desk appearance tickets. None of the young girls picked up was arrested.
"We checked their IDs and if there were no warrants then they were let go," said the police source.
According to a parent, whose son was arrested, police arrived between 11:30 p.m. and midnight. He also said that alcohol was being consumed during the party at 30-06 Lewmay Road.
The building, according to the Department of Finance, is a threefamily home, which Department of Building records show has not been granted certificates of occupancy. It is owned by Litton Loan Serving LP, as the servicer for GSR Mortgage Loan Trust 2006-4F.
A No Trespassing notice was affixed to the door after the party incident.
