PORT HOPE -- The Children's Aid Society took custody of a child after Port Hope police broke up a noisy gathering at a north-end apartment this weekend.

Officers responded to a report of a loud party in a Phillips Road apartment building shortly after midnight Saturday. Police received reports that individuals at the party were launching fireworks from the unit's balcony.

The officers located a young child among a large number of intoxicated people at the gathering; as a result, police contacted the Children's Aid Society, who apprehended the child for its safety.

In addition, police located a 21-year-old Port Hope man who was under conditions not to consume alcohol.

The suspect was arrested, charged with breach of probation, then released after receiving a June court date.
