TELL CITY - Tell City and state police cited or detained more than 20 juveniles and young adults Friday night after receiving a noise complaint about a party under way inside a Burglen Hills home.

According to police reports, police found several underage teens who tested positive for alcohol use. Those over 18 were given criminal summonses but were not jailed. Those under 18 were transported to the Tell City Police Department and later released to parents or other adults.
