More provincial health order related fines issued by Richmond RCMP

Richmond RCMP continue to issue violation tickets to people who contravene provincial orders aimed at stopping the spread of Covid-19.

At approximately 1 am on Saturday, February 13th, 2021, frontline officers attended a karaoke bar near the Aberdeen Square mall, in the 4000-block of No. 3 Road. Officers observed numerous contraventions of the Provincial Protective Measures Order. In all, 34 staff and patrons received violation tickets for $230 each, while the manager received a ticket for $2300. (File 21-4076 refers).

At approximately 2am on Sunday, February 14th, (the following night) frontline officers attended a commercial premises in the 2600-block of Shell Road. Upon arrival, police overheard people singing karaoke and discovered what appeared to be an unlicensed drinking establishment. In all, 21 participants received tickets worth $230 each, for contraventions of the Provincial Protective Measures Order. The organizer on-scene also received a ticket for $2300. (File 21-4167 refers).

In both cases, the investigations continue to determine what other business and/or liquor related charges may apply.

Richmond RCMP is committed to promoting safety in our community, and we will continue to enforce the regulations aimed at slowing the spread of Covid-19, says Corporal Ian Henderson of the Richmond RCMP. It’s quite clear that some people are still not getting the message. People who continue to engage in this type of reckless, irresponsible behaviour will be held to account, says Henderson.
