**** RCMP Media Release
This past weekend, Antigonish District RCMP responded to several calls for noise complaints, house parties of more than 10 people, and large groups of students gathering on streets. These are not acceptable behaviours in these times of the pandemic, and police want the community to know they will continue to take enforcement measures to stop this behaviour.
The RCMP charged five people individuals under the Nova Scotia Health Protection Act for failing to social distance. Three other charges under the Town of Antigonish Municipal Noise Bylaw were laid, and four people were charged under the Nova Scotia Liquor Control Act. In addition, one person was taken into custody overnight for being intoxicated in a public place.
