Police warn organisers against hosting Jam Shed rave
POLICE put a stop to an "unauthorised" party on Saturday night - before it even started.
On Friday, a post on the Tweed-Byron LAC police Facebook page said if the party at went ahead, they would not hesitate to shut it down.
Tweed-Byron LAC crime manager Detective Inspector Brendon Cullen said police were successful in preventing the party, which was planned for the Jam Shed on Dodds Lne, Chinderah, from taking place.
"(The Jam Shed) has come on the radar in the past," Insp Cullen said.
Insp Cullen said there were homes in the area near the venue.
He said discouraging antisocial behaviour would make life more comfortable for those living in the area.
On their post to social media, police pointed out that it's "an offence to hold an unauthorised party of this nature without prior Tweed Shire Council Development Approval".
The statement warned licensed venues and parents about the fines for supplying alcohol to minors.
Insp Cullen said police were alerted to the party plans by a member of the public.
