Eight people were cited for underage drinking during a weekend party, and a Martinez man is charged with furnishing the home and alcohol for the event.
Thomas Whitney Traino Larick, 23, of the 3600 Block of Lynwood Drive, was charged with furnishing alcohol to those under 21 and with maintaining a disorderly house after deputies were called early Saturday morning to investigate a noise complaint at his residence.
Deputies saw several people entering the front door and backyard of the home, and saw people drinking and heard loud noises from inside and outside the home. They were met at the door by Larick, who told them a birthday party was being held and claimed that he wasn’t aware of any drinking.
Eight of the people at the party were found to be under 21 and in possession of alcohol; all tested positive on a portable alcohol tester. Deputies also confiscated a small amount of marijuana found beside an outdoor firepit.
The report stated that Larick had been warned several times about parties at his home, and that there have been “numerous complaints” about drug use and underage alcohol consumption at the residence.
Larick is being held at the Columbia County Detention Center on bonds totalling $3,200, according to jail personnel.
Also cited for underage possession or consumption of alcohol were Joseph Ian Tupper, 19; Muoaz Masood, 19; Chelsea Renee Pittman, 19; Kara Elizabeth Lamberth, 19; Cassy Ann Glosson, 17; Dyshon Vadolle Taylor, 18; Ashley Robin Yohe, 19; and Julian Mckenzie Black, 18.
