(ORLEANS) - A nearly month long investigation by the Indiana State Police has lead to the arrest of two Orleans parents.

The couple are facing three dozen charges.

According to a press release, on August 27, Trooper Craig Starr received a complaint of two parties in Orange county in which minors were being served and provided with alcoholic beverages by the parent of one of the teenagers.

Assisted by Orleans Police Chief Roy McFarland, Starr was able to determine that on August 8 and August 15, 38-year-old Rachel Davis and 39-year-old Andrew Davis, both of Orleans, had purchased and provided alcoholic beverages for parties hosted at their house by their daughter.

During the party, Rachel and Andrew Davis mixed drinks for the teens, as well as set up tables for drinking games.

Police alleged that Rachel Davis had also encouraged the teens to deny they were drinking at the parties.

After conducting interviews and taking numerous statements, the case and information was turned over to the Orange County Prosecutor's Office, who filed charges against the couple in Orange County Circuit Court.

The couple is facing nine counts of providing or furnishing minors with alcoholic beverages and nine counts of contributing to the delinquency of a minor.

Warrants for their arrests were issued and they were arrested Thursday.

Arrested and Charges:
Rachel D. Davis, 38
Andrew G. Davis, 39
330 West Mount Horeb Road, Orleans, IN

Nine counts each:
Sales to Minors:Sell, Barter, Exchange, Provide or Furnish Alcoholic Beverages - Misdemeanor
