County police -- following a man who they said bought beer -- raided an underage drinking party in Shadyside at the home of a 14-year-old whose mother was out.

Police issued a citation to Raymond W. Jackson III on Saturday night, charging him with knowingly furnishing alcoholic beverages to underage drinkers at a party on the 5000 block of Lerch Drive.

Jackson bought what police called "a large amount" of beer at Renno's Market on Deale Shady Side Road (Route 468), then drove to the 14-year-old's home where a party was in full swing, said the plainclothes officers who followed him in unmarked cars.

Besides Jackson, police issued citations to 11 juveniles and six adults -- from Shadyside, Owings and Fitchling, Mass. -- for possession/consumption of alcoholic beverages. They poured the beer into the kitchen sink.

Juveniles will go to Juvenile Court. Adults will go to District Court, where the maximum fines for underage drinkers over age 18 is $500 for the first offense and $1,000 for the second, police said.
