The juveniles quickly turned off the lights to the establishment, police said.

Officers found one of the front doors propped open and went inside where they found five teenagers in the business and two who had exited the rear.

Officers also located an open bottle of vodka and determined the teenagers had been drinking, police said.

An investigation determined that one of the teenagers, identified as a 17-year-old male, was connected to the establishment and allowed his friends into the restaurant where he hosted the party, police said.

That juvenile was arrested and transported to police headquarters, where he was charged with making property available for the underage consumption of alcohol and consumption of alcohol by underage person, police said.

He was released to his parents.

The other juveniles were released to their parents at the scene, police said.

Snapchat is a mobile phone application that lets a user take a photo or video using their camera's phone in real-time.

The user then selects a time limit of 1-10 seconds for the receiver to view the photo or video, according to the company's website.

According to the company, the user can then elect to have the photo/video saved in their phone’s photo gallery or just sent via Snapchat to a friend, without being saved.

A user, however, can also add the photo/video Snap to their “Story," which could be viewed for up to 24 hours, depending on the user’s privacy settings, according to the company.

Officer Jason Gassman is continuing the investigation into the incident.
