Brampton homeowner charged after massive house party led to police shut down
While many residents are practicing social distancing and hoping the region can soon move into Stage 3, a recent incident this past weekend proved that not everyone shares that concern.
On Saturday, July 25, shortly before 10:00 pm, police say they were called for a busy house party in the area of Countryside Drive and Goreway Road in Brampton.
There were as many as 200 people in attendance, police say.
Peel officers and by-law officers attended the scene, and it took until roughly midnight to disperse everybody from the home.
Under the province's current orders for Peel Region, social gatherings are limited to ten people.
As a result, the organizer of this massive house party is now facing fines of up to $100,000 after Peel police and bylaw officers arrived to shut it down.
Mayor Patrick Brown confirmed these charges in a tweet.
“I can confirm Brampton bylaw officers laid charges on the property owners. The matter will be going to court. The maximum penalty is $100,000,” confirmed Mayor Patrick Brown in a tweet.
“Reckless behaviour is expensive.”
