In one particularly puzzling example, Toronto Police broke up a large gathering in a storage unit on Friday night and one charge was laid.

This is the second time in a week that the police have busted a storage unit party and laid criminal charges as a result.

Pegg said that 39 charges were laid as a result of investigations into these gatherings.

One of them included the storage unit party which took place on Trethewey Drive near Black Creek Drive.
