Nineteen Colby College students were summonsed early Saturday on alcohol-related charges at an off-campus party on Collette Street, according to police.

None of the students involved was cited two weeks ago when more than 50 Colby students were charged with alcohol-related offenses in connection with an off-campus party on Winter Street.

Deputy police Chief Charles Rumsey said that at 11:30 p.m. Friday, a Collette Street resident told Officer Andrew McMullen about a loud party at 31 Collette St. The resident reported that speeding vehicles as well as taxis were going to and from the home, Rumsey said.

McMullen and Officer Adam Sirois went to the house where the party was and spoke with Patrick Bursee, one of the renters, who was standing in the driveway, Rumsey said.
