Posted: Updated:

A 59-year-old woman and several teens were charged for an underage house party over the weekend in Sioux Falls.

Police say Sandra Lee Gayken, 59, allowed teens to drink on her property Friday night. When officers got to her home on N. Van Eps Avenue, they found around 25 people holding a bonfire in the back yard.

Some party-goers tried to leave the party when police arrived, but the driver backed into a trailer parked on the street, twice. A 13-year-old girl and a 17-year-old girl were cited for underage consumption. A 16-year-old girl was charged with underage consumption, fleeing police and a curfew violation. The 17-year-old girl driver, from Humboldt, was charged with hit-and-run, fleeing police, underage consumption, curfew violation, marijuana and paraphernalia.

Gayken was charged with maintaining a common nuisance in violation of beverage laws, five counts of contributing to the delinquency of minors, marijuana and paraphernalia.
