Alberta RCMP detachments dealt with an absolutely out of control party in Red Deer County, Alberta over the weekend. On Saturday, July 25, Innisfail and Sundre RCMP responded to a number of complaints in relation to a party that took place on a rural property. According to the police, the Red Deer party had approximately 500 guests.
The complaints kept the police detachments up all night. "In total on July 25 2020 RCMP responded to 11 calls for service between the hours of 7 pm – 7 am the following day," the police said in an email sent to Narcity.
The complaints were made about a whole bunch of different things including damaged property, driving issues, liquor offences, stolen property, uttering threats, and "one report of possession of a weapon dangerous to public peace."
While the police were trying to respond to the situation, a Sundre RCMP vehicle was smashed in by an unidentified person.
Alberta Fish and Wildlife were also called to the scene after a deer carcass was found near the location of the party.
Residents reported being kept awake the whole night because of party noises and the fireworks that had apparently been going off all night.
Another resident in the neighbourhood said that they counted approximately 40 vehicles near the party scene the following morning.
When RCMP officers went to the location the next morning on July 26, they found "human feces, toilet paper, garbage, empty alcohol containers, stolen traffic signs, and covid social distancing signs littering the ground that had obviously been stolen from Innisfail."
Police said in the report that they carried out enforcement by handing out provincial tickets and having checkpoints along the roads to ensure there were no impaired drivers leaving the scene.
RCMP didn't disclose the number or amount of the fines dished out to the party-goers.
"This is concerning behavior which has become very unfortunate for people who reside in this area, their ability to enjoy their homes and their property has obviously been impacted," said Sgt. Lori Eiler of Innisfail RCMP.
The police also added that they'll be continuing law enforcement efforts in the area to provide safety and peace to the residents.
