Police Gave Out 130 Tickets After Finding 200+ People Gathering In A Laval Parking Lot
Police found more than 100 cars and 200 people at the site of a gathering in a Laval parking lot Sunday evening, according to a Service de police de Laval (SPL) spokesperson.
They say officers handed out 130 tickets for violations of public health rules.
Did police take any other action at the gathering?
Police also made two arrests, one for breach of conditions and the other for obstructing the work of police.
They were first alerted to the presence of multiple vehicles at the location at around 8:00 p.m.
The operation included 15 police cars as well as support from the Sûreté du Québec.
What’s at this Laval parking lot?
The parking lot in question is off a service road for Highway 13.
The SPL confirmed to Narcity Québec that the lot is adjacent to a Tim Hortons at the SmartCentres Laval Ouest shopping centre.
The CBC reports that the lot has been the site of racing in the past.
However, an SPL spokesperson told MTL Blog that police had not made a connection between the Sunday evening gathering and racing groups.
