On Thursday March 16, Kingston Police pulled up to a student house on Earl Street around 1:45 p.m. and left with 17 seized beer kegs and taps.

The Kingston Police Street Crime Unit executed a Provincial Offences Act Search Warrant at the residence and charges under the Liquor License Act are pending as stated in a press release from Thursday afternoon. 

According to a Facebook post in the keg party’s event page “2000 cups and all decorations are gone,” as well as all the money partygoers paid in advance — via the Tilt app — which was seized by police. 

The Facebook event was deleted soon after and the accused would not comment on the investigation. 

Kingston Police said that this was done as a measure to help prevent illegal drinking and behaviour and additional officers will be on duty throughout the weekend.
