Five New Canaan Teens Face Alcohol-Related Charges after Underage Drinking in Home Under Construction

Police last month cited five local teenagers on alcohol and other charges following an underage drinking party in northern New Canaan.

At about 10:18 p.m. on Sept. 20—a Wednesday—New Canaan Police were dispatched to a house under construction on Proprietors Crossing on a report that juveniles were on the property and inside the house without permission, drinking alcohol, according to a police report.

The property’s owner had confronted the male teens and they left in a motor vehicle, according to police. The property owner caught the license plate on the vehicle, and then found 53 cans of Bud Light in a cooler in the master bedroom, the report said.

Police launched an investigation and brought infraction summonses against three 16-year-old New Canaan males and two 17-year-old New Canaan males, it said. Police withheld their names because of their ages.

The charges were possession of alcohol by minors and second-degree trespass.

The cases were referred to the Juvenile Matters Division of state Superior Court.
