Police: Bedford couple faces charges after teens flee house partyPosted: Updated:
A Bedford couple turned themselves in to police Friday night after a Sweet Sixteen party at their home sent nearly 40 teenagers running into the street, police said.
Laurel Boeck and her husband, John, face charges including endangering the welfare of a child. Their 16-year-old daughter had alcohol in her system and was high on marijuana, according to police.
"We all made a few silly mistakes and we took care of it," Laurel Boeck told News 12. "Everything’s fine now."
Police responded to a 911 call Friday night to find dozens of teenagers running from the house and the couple’s daughter semi-conscious on the floor, officials said.
An attorney representing the Boecks said in a statement, in part, that the parents "were absolutely unaware kids snuck alcohol into their basement" during the party and called 911 when they found out about the alcohol consumption.
The couple is due in Bedford Court next week.
