Westchester County Police helicopters patroling the area on Dec. 30, came across a large group of Dobbs Ferry teens holding a keg party in the woods in the Juhring Estate, Dobbs Ferry Police said.
"The teenagers had a bonfire, which was detected by the helicopter's thermal control imaging camera," said Dobbs Ferry Detective Marc Bailey. "The camera got images of the fire and a number of youths running."
Apparently the chopper's spotlight startled the youths, who disbursed after they realized it had zeroed in on them at around 10 p.m.
No arrests were made.
Dobbs Ferry Patrol Officer Jeffrey Jee extinguished the small fire. He could not say how many teens seemed to have been involved.
