"While conducting R.I.D.E spot checks on Hwy 101 near the intersection of Hwy 655, Timmins Police officers had occasion to stop a passenger vehicle with 5 unrelated adult occupants, each from separate addresses in the Brantford area," Timmins Police stated.
Each person was charged for not following COVID-19 protocols and could face a fine of $880.
Timmins Police have stated that they are now taking a "firmer approach" when confronting those who are not following COVID-19 rules.
"The educational stance and liberal use of discretion originally adopted by the Timmins Police has come and gone, especially in light of recent distressing numbers related to Covid positivity," read a statement.
Doug Ford has also stated that enforcement across the province will be cracking down on those who are caught gathering with people outside of their household.
