On July 5th, just after midnight, the Dent County Sheriff’s Department received a report of a party going on at a residence off Dent County Road 502A. Upon entering the residence, deputies found three juveniles ranging in age from 15 to 16 years old and three adults ages 17 to 19.  They also located a 25-year old male hiding in the rear of the residence. Taken into evidence were two marijuana roaches, which field tested positive for marijuana.  Also located at the residence were plant stems and a set of brass knuckles. A 17-year old female was issued a citation for possession of under 35 grams of marijuana. All juveniles present were released to their parents.  The Dent County Sheriff’s Department was assisted by the Salem Police Department.
