Police: Hollis man hosted underage drinking party
Matthew Murphy, 18, of 25 Arbor Lane, was arrested Tuesday and charged with facilitating an underage drinking party on April 6 at his home.
Police said about 11 p.m. on that Friday, they received an anonymous complaint about a drinking party taking place at Murphy';s home.
Officers talked with the homeowner that night, but the woman was uncooperative when they attempted to find out if juveniles were there consuming alcohol, according to a press release.
While talking with the woman, police said several juveniles tried to leave the basement through a rear door.
Investigators obtained a search warrant for the home, and about 3:40 a.m. the next day searched it, recovering alcohol in the basement. In all, police said eight underage individuals attended the party.
Murphy is free on $3,000 personal recognizance bail with a May 16 arraignment in 9th Circuit Court, Nashua District Division.
