Antigonish RCMP Address Noise and Liquor Related Offenses Over Weekend

Posted on October 3, 2011

October 3, 2011, Antigonish, Nova Scotia…The Antigonish Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) responded to 62 calls for service over the weekend.

As a result, two Municipal Noise Control By-law tickets were issued, which carry a fine of $397.71, four people were arrested and charged for operating a vehicle while impaired and twenty people were arrested and incarcerated for various infractions under the Liquor Control Act.

RCMP also attended homes where parties were occurring, but not at the point of being in contravention of the Municipal Noise Control By-law. Residents of the homes were informed about the potential consequences of noise complaints.

“Typically we receive approximately 30 calls for service on an average weekend. Although call volumes were higher than usual, we actually saw a reduction compared to the 94 calls for service received for the same weekend in 2010.” says S/Sgt. Tony Perry, Detachment Commander, Antigonish RCMP. “Although the rainy weather may have contributed to fewer calls, we are still encouraged and will continue to work with the community to educate and create awareness about the importance of respecting your neighbours.”

The RCMP would like to thank the public and community partners for their understanding and support over the weekend.
