The Nelson Police Department is reporting no major incidences during the West Coast Amusement Fair this past weekend.

Based on a stabbing near the site last spring and an assault the year before, the local force put extra resources on and near the site over the weekend.

“The event was not without some police involvement as several liquor related offences were observed and enforced,” a police press release stated.

A 37-year-old Langley resident was arrested for Intoxication in Public and lodged in downtown cells.

Several violation tickets were also issued under the Liquor Control and Licensing Act for consuming liquor in public as well as minors in possession of liquor.
