Police find teens' 'living room' set-up in Vets Park woods

Hangout had couch, chairs and area rug

Posted

Barrington police conducted a patrol inside Vets Park on Saturday, June 20, and found a group of teenagers sitting in a makeshift camp.

The area in the woods included a couch and a leather chair, and an area rug on the ground. Police also found a bottle of vodka nearby, but the teenagers said they had no idea where that came from. Police called the teenagers' parents.

Also while inside the park, police located a Jeep and could see a 12-pack of alcoholic lemonade inside. Police then saw a teenager walking toward the Jeep.

The boy said the Jeep was his, but he was only holding the 12-pack for a friend. Police charged the 16-year-old Barrington boy with underage possession or consumption of alcohol-possession.
