BOISE COUNTY -- A massive keg party just off Bogus Basin Road could lead to charges against dozens of Boise teens.

Boise County Sheriff Ben Roeber says it happened Saturday night on Boise National Forest land.

That's where officers found about 100 teens, most involved in underage drinking.

Roeber tells KTVB the teens were partying near milepost 12, about a mile off Bogus Basin Road.

That's where officers found trash, several campfires, beer, liquor, and drugs -- marijuana and ecstasy.

They also found several teens sick and unconscious, some who needed immediate medical attention.

The Boise County Sheriff's Office, Ada County Sheriff's Office, Ada County Paramedics, Idaho State Police, and U.S. Forest Service all responded to the scene.

The Ada County Sheriff's Office says a hunter noticed the large amount of vehicles around 11 p.m. Saturday.

Authorities say about 50 vehicles were seen in the area, some parked off the road.

When officers responded they found about 100 teens, most of them drinking alcohol and some doing illegal drugs.

There was some unconscious kids heavily under the influence which always presents a scary thing with alcohol poisoning and other things, could lead to something very devastating, said Roeber.

Roeber says two teens were taken to the hospital and several others were treated on scene.

An Ada County jail transport bus was brought up to bring the teens down the mountain to meet their parents at Highlands Elementary School.

We gathered up everybody, provided medical attention to those who needed it, and then ultimately Ada County brought up a bus and we were able to bus the kids down and have their parents come pick them up, said Roeber.

So far only one teen has been charged with underage drinking and obstruction.

But authorities say other teens could be charged as well.

Roeber says combining drugs and drinking in a remote area is always a dangerous situation.

In the forest, medical attention takes a long time, we have limited resources up here and often times they will drink in excess or other drugs will be there, and safety for the kids is paramount, said Roeber.

The Boise School District is aware of the incident and is working with authorities.

It took officers and authorities nearly six hours to clear the scene.
