Milford Township Teen Party Ends in Arrests
Written by Bradley Schlegel, Staff Writer

            The Milford Township woman accused of allowing an underage house party last weekend faces one count each for felony endangering the welfare of children and misdemeanor corruption of minors.  The state police also arrested her 16-year-old son after breaking up a March 29 party at their residence.

            Erika Keller, 38, of Milford Square Pike, was remanded to Bucks County jail the following day after Richland Township District Judge Lisa Gaier set bail at 10 percent of $75,000 monetary. She remains in custody, according to information posted on a state judicial website.

            The state police ended the party – allegedly hosted by the boy – that included multiple DJ speakers, a performer and 50 attendees. A search of the residence allegedly turned up marijuana hidden in a white AirPods box, malt liquor, vodka, beer, and other various drinks containing alcohol as well as a ghost gun, according to the police criminal complaint filed March 30 in Gaier's court.

           Authorities allegedly discovered the pistol behind a cabinet. The weapon, which does not have a serial number, was loaded with an extended magazine with 9mm ammunition, according to the legal document.

           Leading up to party, the state police claim to have received numerous notifications and anonymous tips about a party happening the previous day at a residence near the Milford Township Fire Department, located at 2185 Milford Square Pike. They all suggested this party was going to contain underage drinking, marijuana, and firearms, according to the affidavit of probable cause.

            According to the legal document, a father who picked up his child from the party told troopers from the Dublin barracks watching the house that the teenage host – currently on probation – was waiving a pistol around.  At 8:15 p.m., troopers watched the house while staging at both locations. Robert Duminiak, the on-call assistant district attorney, approved a search warrant for the house.

            All attendees were quickly frisk-searched and released. The state police then located Keller, who told authorities that she admitted to allowing her child to have a small party with a few friends. However, due to her having COVID and taking cough medicine, she fell asleep and did not hear how large the party had gotten downstairs, according to the legal document.

            A preliminary hearing in the case has been scheduled for 12:30 p.m. on April 11, according to the judicial website.
