‘Eviction party’ lands teens in hot water

A 17-year-old boy who Victoria police say was throwing an “eviction party” and trashing the apartment suite which he had recently been ordered to leave was interrupted Sunday night.

A passerby walking in the 300-block of Douglas St. called police around 6 p.m. after he was nearly hit by a bottle the teen tossed out his apartment window. Other calls to police followed.

When officers arrived, they found garbage strewn about the suite, said Mike Tucker, police spokesperson.

Of the three male teens and one female teen involved in the destructive house party, a 16-year-old Saanich boy was taken into police custody. The youth, who had been reported missing, was also wanted on an outstanding warrant issued by Saanich police for breaching his supervision order.

The 17-year-old evicted tenant was charged with mischief and released on a promise to appear in court on May 29. He was also told not to return to the suite for his belongings unless accompanied by a police officer.
