Earlier this week Coeur d’Alene School District’s School Resource Officers reported information to the District One Idaho State Police Alcohol Beverage Control regarding a planned ‘Senior Kegger’.

The information projected an anticipated attendance of 300 students. Senior Keggers have historically involved large amounts of alcoholic beverage consumption (beer and liquor) by minors in remote areas. During the resulting investigation, the anticipated location of the party was discovered near the intersection of Forest Service Road 413 and Murray Draw Road, a remote area in the Coeur d’Alene National Forest.

After a party organizer arrived with two kegs of beer, and prior to other students arriving; contact was made with the individual who had prepared the party location. The two kegs of beer were subsequently seized.  The individual was cited for minor in possession of alcohol. The adult who provided the alcohol for the party has been identified and will be charged with providing alcohol to a minor, a violation of Idaho code 23-603.

The Idaho State Police Alcohol Beverage Control was assisted by Idaho State Police Investigations, Coeur d’Alene Police Department, US Forest Service Law Enforcement, and the Shoshone County Sheriff’s Department.

The Idaho State Police wants all graduating seniors, and those looking forward to summer break, to be reminded that their safety and the safety of the public is paramount.

There will be no further press releases as the investigation is continuing.
