After party: 1 arrest, 39 summons

SALEM — A Friday night party will be moving to District Court. And expect a crowd.

That was the decision by police, who arrested one person and summonsed 39 others to court following a loud party on Lawrence Street.

Officers responded at 11:24 p.m. to a complaint about the noise and observed one group of young adults in front of the residence (they turned and headed in the opposite direction at the sight of police) and another behind it. Inside, police estimated that up to 40 people were enjoying themselves.

Police knocked, but, according to the log, “The host and guests refused to answer the doors and continued with their house party.”

The house has previously been designated a “disorderly house,” usually meaning that police have been sent to the location multiple times. Matthew Johnson, 20, of 53 Lawrence St., Salem, was arrested on a charge of being disorderly.

Meanwhile, police have summonsed 39 guests, also young adults, for “disturbing the peace.”

Responding were Patrolmen John Burke, Theodore Pierce, James Johnson and John Anderson and Sgt. Richard Gagnon.
