Helicopter Searches for Partying Chester Teens

The teenagers scattered into the woods after police broke up an underage drinking party Friday night, cops say

A New Jersey State Police Northstar Helicopter, the Morris County Sheriff’s Office K-9 unit, and police officers from multiple towns searched for teens who scattered into the woods after police broke up an underage drinking party on Parker Road in Chester Township Friday night, police confirmed Saturday morning.

According to Chester Township Lt. Thomas Williver, the helicopter searched the area and the backup units were called “to ensure the safety of the partygoers due to the very cold temperatures and to make sure no one was injured in the woods.”

All of the teens who scattered from the home when police arrived were eventually located Friday night, either by patrols or by telephone, he said.

Charges are pending against the host of the party, he said.

In addition to Chester Township, county and state patrols, Washington Township, Mount Olive, and Chester Borough Police Departments all assisted in the search.

REALLY!!! Go to a meeting Call the chief then make the accusations that are being made here about the police! you better have good proof these things exist, people making these accusations about the police breaking laws! They have jobs they NEED to keep they have bills to pay too! I shop in chester DAILY, I drive through and around chester daily, NEVER had an incident! Im not a teenager but im not old. As far as respect is concerned if you exhibit respect to an officer you will get it BACK! be an ass expect to piss them off and thats your very own fault. These kids are jaded because they are giving reason to be pulled over , and probably giving the cops lip. Lets be serious here they are kids who clearly think they are above the law and their parents are gonna back them up no matter what! One day they will have to stand on their own two feet!
