The Standard Journal - - POLICE & FIRE -

CARTERSVILLE, Ga. — About 70 peo­ple at a Christ­mas-themed lingerie party have been ar­rested and charged with mar­i­juana pos­ses­sion in Ge­or­gia.

News out­lets re­port Cartersville po­lice said in a re­lease that of­fi­cers re­sponded to a sub­ur­ban home about 40 miles from At­lanta early Sun­day morn­ing. Par­ty­go­ers told po­lice the loud sounds were fire­works, not gun­shots. The Cartersville Daily Tri­bune re­ports that po­lice found ev­i­dence of drugs and started an in­ves­ti­ga­tion. It’s not clear how much pot po­lice found, but at least 63 peo­ple were charged with pos­ses­sion of less than 1 ounce (28 grams).

A flyer ob­tained by WXIA-TV de­scribed the event as a “Christ­mas lingerie/pa­jama party” cel­e­brat­ing a 21st birth­day.

Lt. M.E. Bet­tikofer with Cartersville po­lice says the in­ves­ti­ga­tion is on­go­ing.
