House party in vacant home ends in arrest of 10 juveniles, 6 adults


A weekend house party late Saturday at a vacant home in The Lakes at Rancho El Dorado ended early Sunday with the arrest of 16 people, 10 of whom were juveniles, according to Maricopa police. 

Demani L. Spivey, Kenyon G. Womack, Keyaun D. Christian and LaBron Peace were arrested and booked into Pinal County jail on suspicion of first-degree trespassing and resisting arrest, police said. 

Desmond S. Lewis and Kevin K. Sias were arrested and booked on suspicion of first-degree trespassing, resisting arrest and misconduct involving weapons. Sias, who is not a minor, faces an additional charge of underage possession of marijuana, police said. Underage on this charge refers to those who are younger than 21. 

At 12:15 a.m., Maricopa police were dispatched to a new home under construction on West Hall Drive on a report of several people trespassing and having a party. Upon arrival, officers found alcohol, marijuana and three loaded firearms, according to Maricopa Police.  

Officers said the trespassing involved 16 males and females, ranging from 15 to 20 years old. 

According to a probable-cause statement, as police attempted to arrest Sias he tried to run from officers. Police later learned that Sias had a loaded handgun. The silver Smith & Wesson reportedly fell and landed between his feet. 

Sias was later found to have marijuana on his person and in his vehicle, according to Maricopa Police. 

While searching the home’s garage, officers contacted Womack, who reportedly attempted to flee. He was tased and taken into custody. Peace also allegedly attempted to flee, but stopped when he saw officers tase another partygoer. While clearing the home’s second story, police found Spivey hiding in a bedroom and Lewis hiding in a closet. Officers said they did not come out initially as instructed. 

Officers reported finding a loaded black Glock handgun on Lewis’ person. 

All 16 people were arrested and processed at Maricopa Police Headquarters. The 10 juveniles were released to their parents with pending referrals to Pinal County Attorney’s Office on felony and misdemeanor charges, police said. 

The six adults were booked into Pinal County jail on felony and misdemeanor charges.
