Officers shut down party

Halloween party attracts 200 guests, including police

A house party advertised on Facebook drew the attention of Vernon RCMP.

Police and bylaw officers were able to shut down the party on 24th Avenue, near South Vernon, which started Saturday night and ended in the early hours of Sunday morning.

The party attracted more than 200 guests, predominantly teenagers, many of them impaired.

“We arrested numerous intoxicated youth and bylaw officers issued a violation ticket to the owner of the residence,” said Gord Molendyk, spokesperson for the RCMP detachment.

According to police, the original party planner told officers she was closing down the house party and moving it to another undisclosed location.

“Our officers, being the investigators they are, were able to find the new location before more kids could arrive, and they shut down that one as well before it became too big to deal with,” said Molendyk.
