Deputies were called out to the 10900 block of Singletree Lane, near Jamacha Boulevard, on a report of loud music and found about 15 people inside a house, according to sheriff's Sgt. Brian Nevins.
Three minors who admitted to drinking alcohol provided at the party were released to their parents, Nevins said.
