MARQUETTE — Sheriff’s deputies and state police broke up a beer party just as it got under way on Sugarloaf Mountain Saturday. The bust was the result of stepped-up efforts to stop teenage beer parties, said Marquette County Sheriff Joe Maino.

“It was a result of information received from a concerned citizen,” Maino said today. “These are the types of things that are going to make our efforts work.” About 30 high school and college-aged persons had met in the Sugarloaf area for a party when the Marquette County Sheriff’s Department was informed by a passerby on County Road 550 of a possible beer party, said Lt. Donald Hermanson.
