Cops shut down late-night illegal session

Poster of illegal party being advertised

(CNS): A late night illegal session, for which the organisers were charging men an admission fee, was closed down by the police in the early hours of Sunday morning. Officers learned about the party from a poster advertising the late-night event after liquor licensing hours on Saturdays at a house in Mahogany Way in Prospect. The poster said that DJ’s would be playing and food and drink would be on sale, which police said was in clear violation of the law. Officers were able to shut down the event without incident at around 12:30am on Sunday morning.

“We would like to remind the public that anyone who holds an event where the general public is invited and asked to pay a cover charge, that does not have a licence for such event, commits an offense,” the police said in a release about the party. “Additionally, playing loud music after 12:00am on a Sunday morning is also against the law. Such illegal events encourage anti-social behaviour and disrupt the community, and the police intend to prevent these activities with positive action.”

The Liquor Licence Law states that anyone concerned in the management of any premises not licensed under the law who sells or allows liquor to be sold there commits an offence and gives the police the right to enter the premises and stop the party.

Anyone with information about illegal parties is asked to share this information with police; neighbours of the address in question are asked to keep police informed of any such activities occurring or planned in this area.

    Not everyone is young and has an interest in partying. No one liked a party more than I. But now that I am older I don’t have the desire anymore. Arthritis pains has set in and I much prefer to be in my cozy bed. However when I partied it was never where folks could be disturbed. Older folks and working people cant handle the noise that comes from the partys. This is being very inconsiderate to the older and the sick folks. We have lost it for sure.

    Great Job RCIPS. ! No go deal with that after party business the going on after hours every Saturday night at XXXXX and Industrial park. Those people should not be allowed to carry on. They are selling alcohol and drugs soon and very soon someone is going to get hurt at those places.

    This goes to show how inconsiderate some individuals are, to be having such events in a residential area. Great job RCIPS.

        Ah. I get that. I used to live behind a big name in South Sound. House on stilts. Had huge parties that went on into the wee hours. My bedroom backed up to their backyard. I always had to sleep on the sofa. Popo NEVER came! Can you imagine?

    I’m all for allowing people to party past 12am on a Saturday if they want to without DUI and as long as it isn’t done in a residential area where other people are trying to sleep.

    Could a discrimination case be brought against promoters and establishments who charge different fees based on gender? I’m not sure how it’s fair or appropriate to discriminate against men by charging them an entrance fee but not charging the women. We wouldn’t charge white people entrance fees and not black people. We wouldn’t charge Muslims and not Christians.

    Yes, yes, we all understand the logic, that by allowing women free entrance, more will theoretically show up, and then more men would theoretically show as well. But the principles of discrimination should still apply. Factor in that these women will probably then complain about being objectified after the fact despite reaping the benefits of freebies.

    Just a thought, probably unpopular with the cns crowds, but just a thought

        12:41 pm you may have missed the point. Yes, nobody is disagreeing that this is common. The question is whether it is discrimination. It appears you are all for equality, so long as discriminating against men still persists.

      What an interesting question. We could charge Christians to come to the church picnic / Christmas pageant / Tent Revival / whatever and Muslims and agnostics and other potential converts for free. But would it be right/legal? Hmmm.

      Sweet baby Jesus, maybe it’s discrimatory too that people over 60 pay less than me to see a movie, or that kids under 6 get in free to most events or that we charge foreigners to work here unless they married to a local. I would prefer that women are charged to get into the club, the majority spend nothing because every Tom, Dick and Harry buys their drinks all night!

      @9:24 Don’t bring that shyte here you SJW. If you have to bring a gender issue into this other than the fact that the parties are ILLEGAL you have bigger issues. I’m 50 years old and from the time I was a teenage I remember parties and events letting women in free. It’s a marketing tactic to draw the men because of the anticipated large number of women. Why does everything for you have to be about gender, do you not have a life or interests in anything else?

    So many people here commenting on “a party being anti-social”. A party is NOT anti-social but supporting an ILLEGAL party is anti-social. F’n morons.

      This term “anti-social” is exhausted now.

      Tell me why anyone should tell me OR you, who to socialize with, when to do it and where!

      That goes against basic human nature.

      Moving on, this issue will not last forever, they will change the laws soon and it will no longer be illegal to dance AND socialize after midnight on Saturday!

        But it will always be illegal to charge for services without licences, in inappropriate areas, and for services that disturb others lawful enjoyment of their homes, etc. – Which is what the story & supportive-of-the-police comments are about.

        @ 1:23 No one is telling you who or where to socialize. I’m all for a good party but all I am saying is you are supporting an ILLEGAL activity fck nugget. That’s my point but I’m sure you could care less about that right? I’m sure you see nothing wrong with it and that is one of the reason our society is in the shitter.

    These ‘Promoters’ also need to be charged & fined under the Anti-Litter Law for posting their flyers on buildings, lamp-poles and private vehicles. Certain areas in GT look like down-town Jamaica with these ‘Bills & flyers’ stuck & strewn all over.

    As far as I know, our Town and Country law states that it is illegal for ANYONE who plays loud music that can be heard outside their premises can be warned by tbe police to turn their music down. If they do not then the police have the right to confiscate their music equipment.

    Right, gathering together playing music and eating food encourages “anti-social behaviour”. I can’t even believe what I just read. Maybe if it was some christian cult humming jesus loves the children while everybody is shaking with the holy ghost it would have been perfectly fine.

        How does partying encourage anti-social behavior? Maybe the RCIPS could have said, “This type of behavior encourages others to break laws.

      There’s Barkers, Queens Highway and behind CUC to hold parties in the wee hours hits of the morning to name a few places. Theres also a way for them to sell alcohol legally. Of all the nights they pick Saturday when they know full well Sunday the day of the Lord and the whole island shut down 1145pm. Do it legally and it’s golden; set yourself up to get busted and shut the f up when it happens. #legalizecommonsense

    What is an example of antisocial behavior?
    Here are some examples of things that could be classed as antisocial behaviour under the law: noisy neighbours. graffiti. drinking or drug use which leads to people being rowdy and causing trouble. large groups hanging about in the street (if they are causing, or likely to cause, alarm and distress)

    The simple fact the organizer was promoting the event reflects the total disregard for the law. I think our laws need clearly the overhaul into the 21st century but until this is done you respect the current. Always someone who thinks they get away with anything.Sure there is no fine…

      i don’t think the laws need to be updated, they are fine, the problem is accountability and enforcement of our current laws, something that always seems to skip everyone when doing crap but you’re right… people who always try to get away with any and everything
