Lodi Teen Charged with Handgun Possession at Heights House Party
Police say house party in Hasbrouck Heights got "out of control" leading to a fight and arrest of Lodi teen for unlawful possession of handgun.
A juvenile from Lodi was arrested by Heights police late Saturday night after a house party in the borough got "out of control," said Captain Jack DeLorenzo.
The captain said the juvenile was found with a handgun in his possession and was charged with unlawful possession of a weapon.
Heights police had responded to a call late Saturday night regarding a large fight at a house party on Miers Avenue, he said. DeLorenzo said the juvenile had allegedly left the party during the fight and returned with a handgun. DeLorenzo said the gun was not used and no one was injured.
The people at the party were from both Hasbrouck Heights and other towns —a mix of underage and older kids, he said. Three adults from out of town were charged with disorderly conduct, the captain said.
