Large party near Hayden Lake nets arrests and illegal drugs

The Idaho State Police, Kootenai County Sheriff’s Office and other law enforcement agencies busted a large party at a residence on East Lookout Drive overlooking Hayden Lake on Friday.

In addition to alcohol, investigators found methamphetamine, marijuana, mushrooms and cocaine at the home.

Police became aware of a “Mansion Bash” event being planned at the home that was expected to attract about 300 people, according to an ISP press release. When police arrived with a search warrant around 9:30 p.m. they found around 240 people there.

Nineteen people were arrested for crimes that included dispensing liquor without a license, delivery of a controlled substance and possession of a controlled substance. Fifteen people were cited for being a minor in possession of alcohol and released.

The Coeur d’Alene Police Department, the U.S. Forest Service and the North Idaho Violent Crimes Task Force also participated in the bust.
