Nova Scotia RCMP hands out $20,000 in fines over house party
A large house party in Cole Harbour, Nova Scotia, has resulted in more than $20,000 dollars in fines.
According to police, around 30 people were in the home; strobe lights and music could be seen from the outside, which likely gave them away.
Police arrived on the scene around 9:35 PM on Sunday. As soon as the RCMP showed up, partygoers turned off the lights, went silent, and refused police entry.
Despite this, police officers waited outside until attendees eventually left the home.
Under the Health Protection Act, the RCMP ticketed a total of nine people for $2,422.00 each, adding up to $21,798, but police say more could follow.
