Weekend happenings kept the Estevan Police Service busy, with break and enters, some impaired driving and more.

"Members responded to a couple of break and enters in progress that were called into the Service. The one turned out to be a male who was very intoxicated and was going to a residence he used to live at. That male was transported to a residence where he could be looked after safely," related Sergeant Evan Handley.

"The second one proved to be just people yelling at each other, it was a domestic situation, so that one is still under investigation at this point in time."

Other occurrences included some vehicle incidents, and a case of assault, where a 33 year old Estevan male was charged.

On Friday, officers arrested and released a 30 year old Carlyle male as a result of a Report Impaired Drivers call. He was charged with impaired driving, Possession of a Controlled Substance (marijuana), Breach of Probation, Possession of a Prohibited Weapon, and Driving while Suspended. He'll appear in court on November 5th.

Friday night, members also dealt with an erratic driver, some suspicious vehicles, curfew checks, noise complaints, a car alarm, and several warrants for people not complying with conditions or failing to appear in court.

A couple of speeding incidents also surfaced, including one driver who was caught zipping along Highway 47 north just outside of Estevan at 158 kilometers an hour.
