Facebook leads police to underage drinking arrests in Gaston County
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
Gaston County police say they were tipped off to underage drinkers by a person who spied information about a party on the social networking Web site Facebook.
Capt. William Melton of the Gaston County Police Department told WCNC-TV of Charlotte on Monday that the Facebook posting also helped officers find the party Saturday night where they found at least 31 underage drinkers.
WCNC says police charged 47-year-old Steven Haney and his girlfriend, 39-year-old Melissa Wilson, with aiding and abetting underage possession/consumption of alcohol. They are both out of jail on $5,000 bail.
Haney would not speak with WCNC.
