Youths trash sleepy Emmadale
EVIDENCE of an out-of-control party at Emmadale at the weekend remained scattered across the suburban streets on Monday morning.
The party kept seven police units busy for several hours on Saturday night.
The six units from Gladstone and one from Tannum Sands responded to the party in Eucalypt Place around 10pm after reports of youths drinking and acting in an unruly manner in the streets.
When police arrived there were about 300 youths in attendance and police had to shut the party down.
Police moved the youths through the streets until they were dispersed.
One female teenager was arrested for assaulting and obstructing police.
Emmadale resident Heather Curran said she was sitting on her deck about 8.30pm when she noticed teenagers everywhere.
“Then before long there were police everywhere,” Ms Curran said.
The party was believed to have been publicised on social networking websites.
