Drinking party leads to arrest of Waterville woman

By Ryan McLaughlin, BDN Staff

WATERVILLE, Maine — A noise complaint at a party at a Park Place apartment early Friday led to the underage renter getting arrested for furnishing a place for minors to drink, police said.

Deputy Chief Charles Rumsey said a complaint of loud music coming from the apartment sent officers to the scene just after midnight, and when they arrived, numerous people scattered into the night.

“The officers intercepted one of them, spoke to that one person and found out there was a party going on,” Rumsey said.

Police made contact with the renter, Anastasia Azenaro-Moore, 19, but she was uncooperative, Rumsey said.

“She refused to allow [us] entry into the apartment,” he said.

Police determined that she was furnishing a place for minors to consume alcohol, Rumsey said, and Officer Andrew McMullen returned to the station to complete a search warrant while other officers secured the scene.

McMullen returned to the apartment, executed the warrant and arrested Moore, charging her with furnishing a place for minors to consume alcohol, a Class D misdemeanor, Rumsey said.

Moore, who was also summoned with possession of alcohol by a minor, was booked into the Waterville police station and later released on bail. Rumsey said the case is far from closed.

“The investigation is ongoing and we anticipate that we will likely be charging the person who procured and delivered the alcohol to the residence,” he said.

Moore is due in court Sept. 18.
