It took police 20 hours to shut down this illegal rave
Specially trained Norfolk police support units were called to the scene of an illegal rave that required a reported 20 hours to halt. Officials received a tip alerting them to the illicit activity at approximately 7:30 p.m. on July 6, after a community member spotted a post promoting the party on Facebook.
An estimated 600 people were on the scene when officers from the Norfolk Constabulary arrived at Masshingham Heath to investigate nearly a full day after the tip. Police seized equipment after shutting down the illegal rave at 3:45 p.m. the following day, and arrested three men aged 25, 28, and 31 in connection with the event’s organization. Officers also arrested two additional men aged 20 and 33 on drug related suspicion.
