WELLFORD, SC (FOX Carolina) -

The Wellford Police Department said two people are charged after teenagers drank alcohol at their home on June 20.

According to the police report, officers were called to a residence on Old Spartanburg Highway after receiving a report of an underage party. When police arrived on scene they said several subjects were running into the woods and trying to flee the scene.

Police said they stopped the subjects and asked the ages of everyone at the party, which ranged from 14 to 18 years old. Officers described seeing open beer bottles lying around and a smell of alcohol coming from the teens.

According to the incident report, the party occurred at the property of 46-year-old Rodney Eugene Burger and 45-year-old Allison Raye Burger, who were at home at the time of the incident.

Officers said Rodney Burger told them he was aware of the underage drinking but said it was better that it be at their home than somewhere else.

Allison Burger said she was not aware of underage drinking but admitted to having looked outside during the evening, where deputies said there were numerous beer bottles, according to the report.

The couple was arrested and charged with contributing to the delinquency of a minor.
