A teen party at Canyon Hall on Saturday night required the use of all available police resources, Creston RCMP Staff Sgt. Bob Gollan said on Monday.

The party attracted hundreds of young people to the event, which did not have a liquor licence.

After receiving complaints from neighbours, the RCMP set up roadchecks and conducted foot patrols in an attempt to keep order.

The music, a local resident told police, was so loud it measured 72 decibels at his home and 90 decibels on the street outside the hall.

“ ‘There is no noise bylaw out here. That’s why we chose the hall,’ is what one of the organizers told one of our members,” Gollan said.

Police received trespassing complaints, seized small amounts of marijuana, found one out-of-control youth who was suspected of having taken LSD, arrested a combative intoxicated male and dumped more than 100 bottles containing alcoholic beverages, Gollan said.

A Canyon Hall volunteer said on Monday that very minor damage had occurred in a washroom and that the hall was left clean by the party’s organizers.
