Police Crackdown On Ridgetown Parties

Chatham-Kent police are sending a message to students partying in Ridgetown.

Officers conducted a targeted crackdown following repeated complaints from residents the last few weeks.

In total, three house parties were shut down, four people were arrested for public intoxication, 14 tickets for open liquor and under-age drinking were issued, and five noise bylaw tickets were handed out. Police also say a 3-day license suspension was issued and numerous bottles of alcohol were seized.

Officials encountered the same issue in Ridgetown last year. Thursday nights are pub nights at the University of Guelph Ridgetown Campus.
