McLennan County, TX — A Central Texas couple is out on bond after being arrested around midnight Saturday on charges of furnishing alcohol to minors.
Phillip Gomez, 60, and his wife Esther Gomez were arrested at their home, just outside of Crawford city limits.
According to Matt Cawthorn of the McLennan County Sheriff’s Office, a party was advertised on Instagram, which is an online photo and video sharing, social networking website. A parent reportedly learned about the party via Instagram and tipped off authorities.
McLennan County Sheriff’s deputies and Crawford Police Department arrived to find about 70 minors at the home. Cawthorn says authorities managed to round-up about half of them and issue citations for consumption of alcohol by a minor. The other half of the minors managed to run off into the woods nearby.
