Nine minors were cited for juvenile curfew violations on Monday night after a young man carrying a young woman towards a room at the Motel 6 on Skyline Drive caught the attention of an officer who was on the premises responding to a suspicious activity call.

The officer stopped the pair to inquire about their age, and both told the officer that they were under 18. While the officer was speaking with them, he observed through the room's opened door several other people moving around inside of the room in an attempt to hide.

One young man claimed responsibility for the party and told the officer that the adult who rented the room for him and provided the alcohol was not at the motel. He was cited for purchase or possession of alcohol by a minor.

The alcohol in the room was photographed and destroyed and the children were releasd with a juvenile citation to their parents.
