House parties a pain for police

Pre-Halloween gatherings prompt calls in Central Saanich

Though Oct. 31 was quiet in Central Saanich, with just a few calls about fireworks, sounds of firecrackers and youths, pre-Halloween parties kept police busy.

In the early hours of Oct. 30, officers were called to the 6200-block of Robin Way for a complaint of noise and people spilling out onto the roadway. When officers arrived, they discovered the homeowner had shut the party down and the noise was from partiers leaving.

A short time later, around 2 a.m., officers headed out to East Saanich Road near Jeffree Road for a complaint of people laying on the roadway. Officers again found several people walking, likely leaving a nearby party. Officers drove two people home for safety reasons.
