Sheriff deputies shut down an illegal warehouse party near the Ridgewood Maspeth border early Sunday morning for violating COVID-19 regulations.

The officers shuttered the warehouse party at 47-02 Metropolitan Ave. around 2:30 a.m. and charged five organizers with multiple criminal, health and liquor offenses.

They found nearly 70 people inside dancing, smoking and drinking alcohol without wearing masks or social distancing.

In addition to flouting coronavirus orders, the warehouse was operating without a liquor license, the NYC Sheriff’s Office said.

The office has shuttered several Queens establishments for hosting parties in violation of COVID-19 rules over the past few months, including karaoke bars and banquet halls.
