The Hutchinson Police Department received a complaint of a loud party at the 600 block of Milwaukee Avenue around 1 o’clock Sunday morning. Officers spoke with the homeowner who allowed them to enter and search the house.

Seven minors between the ages of 18 and 20 from Hutchinson, Glencoe, and Silver Lake were cited for underage consumption.
