Mechanicville police have charged 25 youths with underage drinking in the second major such bust of the month.

Police Chief Joseph Waldron said that 24 youths ranging in age from 16 to 20 were charged along with Joseph Mahoney, 20, who hosted a party Friday night at his parents’ 251 S. Second St. home.

Additional charges are expected once police determine who supplied the alcohol.

Waldron said about 50 people were at the party, mostly underage. Some of the youths had not been drinking alcohol and several ran from the scene once police arrived.

The 25 who were charged are due in court April 1.

Earlier this month, city police busted another party and charged eight teenagers with underage drinking.
