Judicial process pending, it appears one man won't be driving for quite some time.
The Estevan Police Service did a traffic stop Friday night and collected two breath samples from a man. They were both reportedly over double the legal limit, with police citing a reading of .190. The vehicle was impounded and the man's license was suspended, with a court date set for later in the year.
Sgt. Braden Lonsberry said that police did several walkthroughs of Affinity Place during the SaskTel Tankard curling provincials and the extracurricular activities at The Patch, and there were no major issues.
Lonsberry reported an alarm going off at a local business on Sunday night. The business had two sets of doors, and the exterior set had opened, while the second set was properly closed. He said they don't know whether someone tried to break in, or if the first set of doors might have not been closed properly and come ajar.
There was also an intoxicated male banging on apartment doors in a complex that he lived in. Police took him into cells so he could sober up, as there was nobody to look after him.
