Tuesday saw typical Halloween night in Surrey

Police are reporting no major crimes from Tuesday night, which saw 375 calls for service.

Halloween night in Surrey was “virtually the same” as last year from the Surrey RCMP’s perspective, Corporal Scotty Schumann said.

Police are reporting no major crimes from Tuesday night, which saw 375 calls for service.

That’s roughly 40 per cent higher than an average Tuesday night in October.

Most of the calls Surrey Mounties responded to on Halloween night this year involved so-called “nuisance” complaints involving noise, mischief, property damage, fireworks, and youth fights.

The city also received 110 bylaws complaints involving fireworks but at press time the number of fireworks seized in Surrey on Halloween night, or during the days leading up to it, was not yet available.

“We seized a lot more leading up to Halloween during the joint enforcement we do every year with Bylaws, who cracks down on illegal sellers of fireworks,” Schumann said.

Meanwhile, Now-Leader reader Kari Brewster’s Halloween night could not be characterized as serene.

“We had endless fireworks in front of her house, damn I hate that!” Brewster commented. “I don’t like sounding like I live in a war zone!”

Moreover, Barbara Prince, who lives near Hawthorne Park, was “not impressed with the super loud fireworks at 4 a.m.” beside her house.
