Four men will face misdemeanor charges in Mentor Municipal Court Tuesday in connection with a drinking party Friday night at Uncle Bob’s Storage.
Additionally, five underage teen-agers, four 17-year-olds and one 16-year-old, will face misdemeanor charges in juvenile court.
Jamie Jubek, 18, of Mentor, was cited for underage consumption and possession of alcohol and for possession drug paraphernalia, according to Mentor Police reports.
Ryan Jeric, 18, of Euclid was cited for underage consumption and possession of alcohol and for providing a place for underage drinking.
A witness called Mentor police after seeing teens parking in a nearby lot and crawling underneath Uncle Bob's fence.
When officers arrived, they could hear loud music and shouting coming from the unit, as well as a single extension cord.
Police disconnected the cord and the music stopped. Then the overhead door on the storage unit opened.
Police saw about 15 teenagers partying in the unit.
The teens had set up a beer pong game inside of the unit, as well as couches, chairs and a Christmas tree of beer cans, according to police.
Two other adults charged with underage consumption and possession of alcohol are Neil Gallager, 19, of Willougbhy and Maxwell Spittler, 18, of Painesville.
