Vancouver Police officers discover booze-can in Downtown apartment building

Darpan News Desk Vancouver Police, 26 Jan, 2021
  • Vancouver Police officers discover booze-can in Downtown apartment building

A party host received $2,500 in tickets after Vancouver Police discovered he was running a makeshift nightclub in a downtown apartment building. VPD officers came across the booze-can on Saturday night after a woman called police to report she had been invited to a party at a condo on Richards Street. When she arrived, there were approximately 100 people inside.

So far this month, VPD has received four complaints about social gatherings inside the apartment. Investigators believe the owner has been using the residence to host large parties. Saturday’s party was so big, it featured a doorman who was wearing a protective vest, carrying a counting device, and holding several denominations of money.

That man was issued two Emergency Program Act tickets – one for hosting the unlawful event and one for failing to wear a face covering VPD investigators are now working with Crown counsel to obtain court-ordered conditions that will prohibit the apartment owner from hosting large parties.
