People had had enough of music blaring from a neighbour's stereo In Elliot Lake so they called the police.

It was just past p.m. on Sept. 14 when officers of the East Algoma OPP responded to numerous noise complaint calls at a townhouse complex.

The complainant reported very loud music being played at a unit within the complex. 

"The music had been playing for approximately three hours and was so loud, the walls were shaking in neighbouring townhouses," said Constable Phil Young. "Police attended the townhouse and spoke to a male who was belligerent with officers but agreed to turn the music down. Approximately five minutes after police departed from the area, the male turned the music up even louder than it was the first time."

Police were called again and determined the extremely loud music was coming from the same townhouse.  

"This time the male would not speak to police and refused to open his door," said Young. "Again, police advised the male to turn the music down numerous times with still no response. Police breached the door and found the male on his living room couch in a highly intoxicated state. He was subsequently arrested and the stereo and speakers were seized."

Andrew Logan, 43, from Elliot Lake, is charged with "mischief - obstructs, interrupts or interferes with the lawful use, enjoyment, or operation of the property."

Logan is scheduled to appear before the Ontario Court of Justice in Elliot Lake on October 29.
