Police: Hollis man hosted underage drinking party

HOLLIS - A local man has been arrested and accused of hosting an underage drinking party earlier this month.

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.
