There were seven people playing poker.
Saanich Police issued a big old ticket to a homeowner for breaking B.C. gathering limits on Saturday, November 14.
The police report says the person was “hosting a poker party” that had more than six guests.
The officers visited the home after they had received several reports of people gathering in a home.
Police say seven people were in the garage playing poker around a table.
In addition, there were three more people inside the house.
Apparently, none of the ten people actually lived there.
“All of the ten guests left and the homeowner was issued a violation ticket under the Covid-19 Related Measures Act for $2,300 in contravention of the Gathering and Events Order related to holding an event at a private residence with more than 6 guests who do not live there,” said the police release.
Police say that this same home has been attended before by law enforcement for similar reasons.
