HARMONY – A Panama man is facing charges after the Chautauqua County Sheriff’s Office says deputies were called to break up a party over the weekend where ‘several hundred people’ were in attendance.

Deputies say they responded to a location on Goshen Road in the Town of Harmony Saturday at 9:30 p.m. where Eli Miller, 27, was hosting a party involving hundreds, including many under the age of 21.








Miller is charged with first-degree unlawfully dealing with a child and second-degree criminal nuisance.

He was issued tickets and is scheduled to appear in the Town of Harmony Court at a later date.









According to the New York State on PAUSE order, social gatherings of up to 50 people are allowed for area’s in phase four reopening.

On Monday, New York State Governor Andrew Cuomo tweeted a video criticizing a large concert downstate.















The Governor saying the Department of Health will investigate the social distancing violation, and that, the state has no tolerance for the “illegal and reckless endangerment of public health.”

Those who violate the NY on PAUSE order could face a fine up to $1,000. The state has a webpage set up for the public to file complaints which are forwarded to local municipalities for investigation.

Cuomo recently called on localities statewide to step up their COVID-19 enforcement efforts.

  1. Kudos to Mr.Miller and friends for standing up for Constitutional rights. It appears more and more people are awakening to the fact; CV19 is a well orchestrated HOAX. Emperor Cuomo has no clothes..

    • Selfish, ignorant, un Christian, You will be punished by a vengeful God. Mend your ways or spend eternity in Hell.

  2. This was a Amish person. Unless the authorities can prove that they all were notified other than internet, or the news, how can they convict them. I’m not saying that underage drinking is alright because they are aware of that law but, the gatherings over 50 people they may have not had a knowledge of.
