The Raid: Uncovering the Truth

Following an in-depth investigation, the Gunungguruh Police Sector Criminal Investigation Unit raided a hut in Gunungguruh District. This location, frequented by several teenagers for alcoholic beverage parties, became a hub of illegal activities. The raid led to the discovery of numerous items, including alcoholic drinks and sharp weapons.

Interrogation and Investigations: Ensuring Justice

The Gunungguruh Police Sector office brought in the majority of these teenagers, all minors, for interrogation. Following exhaustive questioning, one teenager was identified as a suspect in the illegal possession of sharp weapons case. Additionally, several other teenagers are now required to report regularly to the Gunungguruh Police Sector for ongoing monitoring to prevent similar incidents.

Alcohol-Fueled Parties and Weaponry: A Dangerous Mix
