Police watched as guests scattered at a house party in Saanich on Saturday.
The Saanich Police Department was called to a Gordon Head home on Feb. 6 around 10:30 p.m. for reports of a house party in contravention of current public health orders. When they arrived, officers saw 10 to 15 people gathered on a deck. The people scattered when they saw police.
The resident denied a party had taken place but was issued a $2,300 ticket under the Emergency Programs Act for organizing or hosting a non-complaint event.
