Quiet start to New Year in Vernon
Vernon RCMP had a relatively routine end to 2012 and start to 2013.
Police spokesman, Gord Molendyk, only 11 people were handed personal invitations to spend the night at the RCMP's gated hotel.
Most of those according to Molendyk were for fighting and other alcohol related activities.
Molendyk says Silver Star Mountain was very quiet after the midnight fireworks.
"Our officers reported no arrests and everyone seemed to be having a great time. Only a few people were asked to dispose of open liquor," says Molendyk.
Meantime, officers were out in force patrolling roadblocks in several areas of the city New Year's Eve.
