Too many people at Vernon Halloween party

Police called to home for report of party fight; found more people than allowed under COVID rules

It was an expensive Halloween for a Vernon homeowner.

Vernon-North Okanagan RCMP were called to a home in the 6000 block of Tronson Road, in Okanagan Landing, for a report of disturbance Saturday, Oct. 31, at about 11 p.m.

There was a report of a fight between two intoxicated people at a Halloween party.

While on-scene, police found the number of guests exceeded the limits set out in the COVID-19 Related Measures Act (CRMA).

The homeowner was fined $230.

“The Vernon-North Okanagan RCMP would like to remind the public of the absolute importance of following the CRMA guidelines set forth by the Provincial Health Officer,” said Vernon-North Okanagan RCMP media relations officer Const. Chris Terleski.

There were no injuries or arrests in regards to the reported fight.
