An underage drinking task force in Hancock County charged more than 20 people with underage drinking after busting two different parties overnight.

Officials say the underage drinking task force busted the two separate parties Saturday night – one in Greenfield and one in McCordsville.

Between the two parties, 19 people between the age of 18-20 and three juveniles under age 18, were charged with minor consumption and minor possession of alcohol.

Major Brad Burkhart told Eyewitness News that two additional parties were busted last weekend too. One of those parties was prom related, he said.

The underage drinking task force started last year. Burkhart said Hancock County is being proactive and is “on the leading edge” of preventing and catching underage drinking.
