Temperatures started to warm up last night which was good for our Estevan Police Service as they were kept busy throughout Friday nights shift.

Sgt. Tyler McMillan, "Police received a 911 call from a local resident in town last night, check revealed that no emergency occurred and nothing further was needed. A noise complaint was called in from the Northeast area condo unit last night, police attended and checked it out but the music had been turned down prior to our arrival so no further action was needed."

"We also received a call to be on the lookout for a vehicle headed towards Estevan, Police units were set up on the edge of the city but no vehicle matching the description entered the city. Police responded to a residence again on the Northeast area of the city, for a continuous beeping noise. The concern was that it may be a smoke detector or a carbon monoxide detector, the source was located and it was just a fire detector that was discarded and thrown in the garbage. The batteries were removed and the noise was stopped."

The North end of the city continued to be busy McMillan states, "Two separate commercial alarms from a North end business were called in, the building was checked out and everything was secure and no suspicious activity was detected."

A reminder to slow down in the city, "Police also responded to a minor vehicle collision on the Northeast area of the city, no injuries occurred and the collision is still under investigation."

"Police were advised about a suspicious vehicle in and around some commercial properties earlier in the afternoon, patrol units patrolled these areas as well as the industrial areas of the city throughout the night. A couple different traffic stops and property checks, door checks were done, but nothing was located by members."
