BX house party draws large crowd…and police

A house party in the BX got out of hand Saturday night. Several times. One 17-year-old arrested

A house party in the BX got out of hand Saturday night. Several times.

Bylaw officers called the Vernon RCMP at 10:35 p.m. about a complaint of a loud party in the 6200 block of Rimer Road.

“Several of our officers attended to deal with approximately 250 individuals partying in an empty house that the renters had been evicted from,” said Vernon RCMP spokesperson Gord Molendyk.

“Numerous arrests were made of both adult and youth.”

One 17-year-old male, in particular, is facing charges of causing a disturbance, assaulting a police officer and resisting arrest when he wouldn’t cooperate with officers.

“The youth wrestled one of our officers to the ground, then ran away,” said Molendyk. “He was located by our police service dog team.”

The youth is slated to appear in Vernon Provincial Court in February.

A handful of others – both youth and adult – spent the night in the police lockup.

The incident tied up police resources for several hours because, as Molendyk said, individuals kept returning to the house to continue the party after police broke things up.

There was a lot of damage caused to the house as a result of the party, though the estimated dollar amount is not in the police file.
