22 arrested at underage drinking party

BEDFORD – Twenty-two people were arrested on Oct. 30 after police responded to an underage drinking party at a Donald Street residence.

Michael Yacono, 20, and Thomas Oliveria, 20, both of Bedford, were charged with facilitating an underage alcohol house party and prohibited sales of alcohol.

At around 12:40 a.m., police received an anonymous report regarding a large fight on the front lawn of a residence at 421 Donald St.

The caller also reported that a large number of college-age people were at the home and that a party had been going on all night.

A significant amount of alcoholic beverages were seized and 20 additional people under age 21 were arrested on underage drinking charges, according to police.

Those arrested were:

Samantha Seamon, 20, of East Hampton, Conn.; Danielle Tunak, 20, of Shrewsbury, Mass.; Brock Weber, 19, of Bristol, Conn.; Ned Brady, 20, of Tiverton, R.I.; Juan Suarez, 20, of Goffstown; Anthony Ferguson, 20, of Brighton, Mass.; Adam Archidiacono, 20, of Lynnfield, Mass.; Matthew Shanahan, 19, of Westwood, Mass.; Giovanni Lorusso, 20, of Norwood, Mass.; Kelsey Dakoulas, 20, of Manchester; Helen D’Aprino, 20, of Woburn, Mass.; Amanda Horgan, 19, of Atkinson, Mass.; Michael Kaznowski, 19, of Barrington, R.I.; Michael Koulopoulos, 18, of Scituate, Mass.; Caitlin Heneghan, 20, of South Windsor, Conn.; Garret Gervais, 19, of Chelmsford, Mass.; Thomas Morgan, 20, of Greencastle, Pa.; Elizabeth Webster, 20, of Sandown; Bradley Shoemaker, 20, of Merrimack; and Brian Poznanski, 20, of Nashua were charged with unlawful possession of alcohol.

Poznanski is a Democratic state representative in his first term. He was elected in November and said he has no plans to step down due to his arrest.

Yacono and Oliveria were released on a $750 personal recognizance bail, while the other 20 people were released to responsible, sober adults over the age of 21.

All 22 people are scheduled to be arraigned Dec. 7 at 8 a.m. at the Merrimack District Court.
