A scene of chaos broke out in Old Town Sept. 14, resulting in thousands of dollars of damage to a local pub and two Toronto men being charged.

Between 11 p.m. and midnight, three young men allegedly went into a storage room at the Irish Harp Pub and caused about $2,000 of damage, said Niagara Regional Police Cost. Phil Gavin in response to inquiries from The Lake Report.

One of the males, a 20 year of from Toronto, was arrested at the scene of Irish Harp, and “charged and released under the Trespass to Property Act, Liquor Licence Act,” Gavin said.

Police were called again not long after, this time to the Prince of Wales hotel to investigate a fight and disturbance. Gavin confirmed the same individuals were involved in both cases.

Wentworth Desmond Jones, 18, of Toronto, was located in the area of the Prince of Wales at about 1 a.m. Sept. 15. He was arrested and charged with mischief under $5,000. Gavin said Jones was provided a court and finger print date and released on a promise to appear.

The third male was never located or identified, Gavin said.
