When an area resident complained about suspicious behavior in the area of Althea Lane and Hanson Road just past midnight on Saturday, police said they found a teenage drinking party had just taken place in a nearby home. A 19-year-old resident of the home on Althea Lane was charged with providing alcohol to minors, and police called the parents of two teenagers found in the house, although all the other attendees at the party appeared to have left before police arrived at about 12:40 a.m., police said. Darien police gave this account (including accusations not proven in court):
At about 12:40 a.m., a neighborhood resident told police that males were talking in the area and two suspicious males with flashlights were running from a house on Althea Lane where a burglary had taken place in the past. The resident told police that the two got in a car and left. Police came and walked up to the house, seeing Natural Light beer cans on the lawn.
