A 911 call turned into a massive drug bust leading police in Georgia to arrest at least 70 people attending a lingerie-themed birthday party on New Year’s Eve.

The Cartersville Police Department said in a statement that officers responding to a call of apparent shots fired early Sunday morning located evidence that prompted a drug investigation.

Lt. M.E. Bettikofer said all of the 70 people were booked into the Bartow County jail by Monday night and charged with a single count of possession of less than 1 ounce of marijuana.

WMAZ obtained a flyer describing the event as a “Christmas lingerie/pajama party” celebrating a person’s 21st birthday.

Local resident Jeremy Lemons described the same flyer to WAGA-TV.

Bettikofer says police are continuing to investigate the case.
