Elk Grove Police arrested or issued citations to 15 suspects, many of them juveniles, early Saturday morning following a so-called "abando" party.

According to police reports, officers were dispatched to the 10000 block of Schuler Ranch Road in Elk Grove's East Franklin neighborhood regarding a party in a vacant residence, or a so-called abando party. Upon arrival officers discovered a 14-year old girl passed out in one of the residence's bedrooms who was transported to an area hospital for treatment.

During the course of the investigation, officers determined that the occupants did not have permission to be inside the residence. A 16-year old female was taken into custody for contributing to the delinquency of a minor, trespassing and for obstructing a peace officer.

A records check found one of the party goers, 19-year old Richard Cardenas of Elk Grove had an active felony warrant for his arrest. Police arrested 19-year old Michael Leal of Elk Grove for possession of burglary tools, trespassing and an active warrant, 21-year old Matthew Gomes of Sacramento and a 17-year old Elk Grove male for trespassing and possession of burglary tools.

The suspects listed above were taken to the county jail or juvenile hall. Police also issued misdemeanor citations to nine adults and two juveniles, who were taken into custody, for trespassing.

As reported last year, area youth have frequently used abandoned homes, particularly in Elk Grove's East Franklin area, for so-called abando parties. The parties, which are publicized by social media and text messaging, occasionally charge admission fees although it is not known if there was a charge for this party.

Just what are "burglary tools?"
Songwriter Gordon Lightfoot used to rehearse in abandoned properties because he said he liked the acoustics in empty rooms.
Our young people need a place for recreation, where they can have fun and feel at ease.
Hey, let's slice and dice the social safety net a little more.
