173 Pelham Road, Amherst
So yes, already it has begun -- even before the main army of youth returns to our little college town and turns it into a ... big city. Well, almost.
Two houses were cited over the weekend for violating the anti-noise Town ByLaw (bringing a $300 fine per person) but the party house winner was easy to choose. All women for one.
According to APD logs (9:45 PM Saturday night):
Upon our arrival on scene, loud music and voice could be heard coming from inside the residence at 173 Pelham Road. I spoke with a resident of that address who stated they were all underage and had been drinking. Alcoholic beverages were visible throughout the house. The resident stated that a live band was playing inside the house and that was the reason for the noise. All five (5) placed under arrest for TBL noise.
All of them, gasp, UMass/Amherst students:
Jessica Gibbon, Oakhurst, NJ, age 20
Kate Werder, Narberth, PA, age 19
Lindsey Leistinger, Marshfield, MA, age 19
Sarah Ricciarelli, Pembroke, MA, age 19
Rosa Topping, Belmont, MA, age 20
