Party ends when police arrive


FIVE people allegedly caught partying at a Somerville house on the weekend have each been fined $1652.

Sergeant Damien Lombard, of Hastings police, said police knocked on the door suspecting a party was in full swing, but this was allegedly denied by the homeowner, Saturday evening 22 August.

However, it seems the partygoers headed for the exit when the police used their new powers under the state of disaster declaration to enter the house uninvited.

Sergeant Lombard said the partygoers had run out the back to hide but were rounded up and fined.
