Police had to get a warrant and force their way into a Center Grove area house where officers found multiple beer cans. Eight teens were detained.
Sheriff’s deputies were called to Brockton Manor, off Olive Branch Road, west of State Road 135, just after midnight Thursday. Residents had reported that teens were walking along the street, throwing eggs at homes, according to the Johnson County Sheriff’s Office report.
Two teens walking on the street told police they had come from a home in the 4100 block of Cobblestone Way, where they said other teens were drinking and smoking marijuana, the report said.
Deputies went to the home and tried to talk to the teens inside. One of the boys saw the deputies, ran inside, shut the door and yelled that police were at the home. Three teens then ran into the backyard and tried to jump over a fence. Another made it over the fence, but all four were caught by deputies, the report said.
A teen inside the house told the deputies to leave and shut the door, refusing to come out. Deputies requested and received a search warrant for the house, and, after repeatedly yelling for everyone inside to come out and ringing the doorbell, the deputies forced the front door open. Inside they found beer cans and smelled marijuana, the report said.
Police called the owners of the home, who was out of town, and told them what happened, the report said.
Three adults were arrested, and five juveniles were detained and then released to their parents. The blood-alcohol contents for all of the teens ranged from 0.016 percent to 0.094 percent, the report said.
Tyler Shea Jarjoura, 19, of 4131 Cobblestone Way, Greenwood, was arrested on charges of contributing to the delinquency of a minor, possession of alcohol by a minor and resisting law enforcement. Bryce Paul Hillman, 18, of 1282 Elm Grove Lane, Greenwood, and Jordan Lee Adamowicz, 18, of 1539 Creekside Lane, Greenwood, each were arrested on a charge of possession of alcohol by a minor. Hillman also was arrested on a charge of resisting law enforcement.
All three were taken to the Johnson County jail. Jarjoura was being held on $3,000 bond, Hillman on $4,000 bond and Adamowicz on $1,000 bond.
Five juveniles were detained on charges including possession of alcohol by a minor and resisting law enforcement and were released to their parents.
