Police have been called to break up a second party in the Jindabyne area in just over a week, with nine people issued with $1000 infringement notices for public health non-compliance after a private party in East Jindabyne on Saturday night.
About 11pm officers were called to a resort in East Jindabyne following a noise complaint. Police went to a room where loud music was being played and discovered 27 people inside. Only eight were actually staying at the resort.
Nine people at the party will be issued with penalty infringement notices for public health order non-compliance and for exceeding the 20-person limit for gatherings.
The remaining people inside the room were moved on after police took their details.
On Friday, July 24, police were called to bushland about two kilometres from Lake Jindabyne where they found between 150 and 200 people having a dance party, with a large bonfire, lighting and amplified music set up.
Attendees ran into the bush when they saw police. Officers shut down the dance party and took details from those who were left behind.
