Police bust massive party, make 5 arrests


STONINGTON — Stonington police arrested several out-of-town residents on a variety of charges after responding to complaints about a large party on Friday night.

Stonington officers, along with members of the Groton Police Department and the Connecticut State Police, responded to a call shortly after 10 p.m. reporting a loud and out-of-control party on Al Harvey Road, according to Stonington Police Sgt. Dave Knowles.

Knowles estimated that between 300 and 500 people were at the party when officers arrived.

Five of the party-goers were charged for refusing to leave after police told them to vacate the area. One Plainfield resident was also charged for attempting to fight back against an officer.

Joshua Michel Gluck, 22, of 200 Dow Road, Plainfield, was charged with first-degree criminal trespass, interfering with an officer: non-assaultive, breach of peace: non-assaultive and non-threatening and assault of public safety/emergency personnel: dangerous instrument. Specifics on the instrument used were not available.

Other arrests included:

- Daniel Williams Cracas, 21, of 119 Marshall Lake Road, Torrington, for first-degree criminal trespass.

- Richy D. Avery, 24, of 43 Long Pond Road South, Ledyard, for first-degree criminal trespass and interfering with an officer: non-assaultive.

- Andrew Sidhu. 25, of 85 Georgetown Road, Weston, for interfering with an officer: non-assaultive and breach of peace: non-assaultive and non-threatening.

- Kristina Wood, 23, of 8 Manor Road, Oakdale, for interfering with an officer: non-assaultive and breach of peace: non-assaultive and non-threatening.

Responding officers from all three departments were able to break up the party successfully, according to Knowles.
