Police Found A Group Of Teens Having A Party At A Quebec Hotel & Gave Them $1,000+ Fines

Police were called to break up an illegal hotel party in Lévis, Quebec on Saturday, January 16. The Service de police de Lévis (SPVL) confirmed to MTL Blog that six teenagers aged 17 to 18 were fined "$1,000 plus costs."

Gatherings of this kind are not allowed under Quebec's current public health regulations

$1,000 Fines for six partying teenagers in Lévis

"An anonymous call to the dispatch centre" notified the police at around midnight on Saturday that a party was happening, an SPVL spokesperson told MTL Blog. 

"Our police officers were brought to intervene at the Days Inn hotel in the Saint-Nicolas sector in Lévis."

"The patrollers noted the presence of six people aged 17 and 18. Six reports of offence were issued under the law on public health."

In Quebec, fines from $1,000 to $6,000 are issued to those who violate the public health rules and have large indoor gatherings. 

The Chaudière-Appalaches region, containing Lévis and multiple other municipalities, is considered a "red zone," the maximum level of alert in the province. 

In addition, Quebec is under a curfew from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m. until February 9.
