PLYMOUTH — The continuous problem of unruly student mobs near Plymouth State University has sparked a conversation between campus officials and Plymouth and Holderness police.

Police on Sunday had to break up a crowd of more than 300 that left a private "pirate" party at 10 Pleasant St. on Sunday at about 3:05 p.m., the Union Leader reported.

This is the fourth time in the past year that police had to break up an unruly gathering near the campus.

The first large gathering to be broken up was on May 7 when a crowd of 300 to 400 students started throwing rocks and bottles at police. Two other gatherings were broken up by local, county and state police on Sept. 10 and Sept. 17.

Police chiefs from Plymouth and Holderness spoke with PSU officials on Wednesday to discuss this ongoing problem.
