A report of a missing juvenile leads to the arrest of a woman on allowing minors to drink alcohol at an Open House party.
After midnight Monday, the mother of a 17-year-old girl reported to the Walton County Sheriff’s Office that she did not return home after going out to eat with friends on Sunday night in Miramar Beach.
The missing girl had previously texted a friend indicating she was at an apartment, but was not sure where. While taking the missing person’s report, Sandestin security indicated that they had already been to an apartment on Crystal Cove Lene in reference to a minor consuming alcohol when their parents picked her up.
Sheriff’s Deputies arrived at the apartment to find the missing 17-year-old and a second underage teenage girl along with liquor bottles. Authorities arrested Olivia Cauley, who claimed she owned the residence.
Cauley is charged with two misdemeanors: Contributing to the Delinquency of a Minor, and also Allowing Minors Alcohol at an Open House Party. The 18-year-old was booked and later released from the Walton County Jail under a $1,250 dollar bond.
