Waterville teen accused of hosting underage drinking party, police say

By Ryan McLaughlin, BDN Staff

WATERVILLE, Maine — A Waterville woman was arrested early Saturday after a loud party involving underage drinking was broken up, police said.

Linsey Soucy, 18, allegedly was hosting a gathering at her Spring Street apartment at which seven underage people were consuming alcohol, Waterville Deputy Chief Charles Rumsey said.

Police had been called to the scene at 12:15 a.m. to investigate a noise complaint, Rumsey said, and when Officer Brian Gardiner went to the scene, an intoxicated person answered the door.

The officer asked to speak to the renter of the apartment. An intoxicated Soucy reportedly invited Gardiner in and the officer found several empty beverage containers.

Soucy was arrested and charged with furnishing a place to minors to consume liquor, booked into the Waterville police station and released on bail. The other partygoers were summoned for underage drinking, with the exception of a 14-year-old girl from Oakland who was released to her parents’ custody, Rumsey said.
