16 tickets issued after noisy St. Catharines St. Paddy's Day bash

Some St. Patricks Day revellers will now have to find a pot of gold to pay for tickets handed out by NRP following a street party in St. Catharines on Friday.

16 people were given tickets yesterday for noise and liquor infractions after police were called in to break up the massive party on Jacobson Avenue near the Pen Centre.

A police spokesperson says there are usually extra patrols in the area on St. Paddy's Day because of the high number student tental units, but those extra officers were dispatched to search for accused killer Justin Kuijer instead.
