Salem police break up house parties

SALEM — Police broke up two house parties within about a mile of each other early yesterday morning, dispersing crowds of students and issuing one city ordinance violation in the process.

Three officers responded to 211 Jefferson Ave. at 12:31 a.m. after a noise complaint regarding a party at the residence. Police advised a man’s guests to leave for the night, and they did without incident, according to the incident log.

Police also warned a resident that if officers had to return, the man would be issued a citation. Officers cleared the scene by 12:50 a.m.

Two of the same officers responded to 41 Hancock St. for a similar report about an hour later. They found multiple people outside an apartment there and as many as 50 college students inside, the log said.

“Most of the people started to leave once we told them they party was over,” police wrote. “Five people tried to hide inside of a large closet. We opened the door, escorted them out of the closet and advised them if they did not leave the area they would be arrested.”

A resident at the location was issued a $200 city ordinance violation for knowingly having a loud party, according to the log.

Police noted that it was the second time in a week they had responded to the address for a report of a loud party.
