A house party in Fountain involving 51 people, more than a third of them juveniles, resulted in multiple arrests Saturday morning, Fountain police said.

Margaret Rangel, 36, and Lucas Salas, 26, were arrested for allegedly supplying alcohol to minors at a party at 730 Calle Entrada.

Police said three of the 51 people at the party Friday were older than 21.

A 14-year-old boy was lying in the driveway of the home, facedown in vomit, when officers arrived about 1 a.m., police said.

Four other arrests were made, including Quanisha Baros, 18, and Jeremy Mondragon, 21, who had outstanding arrest warrants.

On Tuesday, four adults were arrested by Fountain police after a 17-year-old was found lying unconscious in a roadway near a house where a party was taking place.

Police arrested Dawn A. Mayes, 38, Cameron D. Allgier, 18, Trey D. Dawson, 21 and Amanda M. Herzog, 24, on suspicion of contributing to the delinquency of a minor, a felony offense.

Sgt. Jess Freeman, a spokesman for the department, said both calls were from neighbors, and were not necessarily part of a concerted effort by the department to crack down on underage drinking.

Freeman said the message from the two cases was clear.

"If you're over the age of 21 and participating in juveniles drinking, that's a felony and you're going to jail," he said. "Be adults."
