Lincoln Police have arrested a mother on 22 counts of contributing to the delinquency of a minor after she bought two kegs of beer for her underage daughter and her friends.
Officer Katie Flood said Cheryl Beckner was arrested Sunday after officers received an anonymous call there was a party with minors at her home at 5501 Locust.
When officers arrived at 1:30 a.m., Flood said they found 22 minors ranging in age from 15 to 20 and two kegs of beer purchased by Beckner. Flood said all 22 minors received citations for MIP and inmates of a disorderly house.
Beckner was cited and released for maintaining a disorderly house, 22 counts of contributing to the delinquency of a minor, and two charges of keg registration violation for tearing the registration tags off of the kegs.
Officer Flood said there was so much alcohol in the home that the breathalyzers used by officers recorded a .03 just from the air within the residence.
