It was a busy but encouraging night for the Estevan Police Service as they dealt with a number of calls for service and conducted high visibility check-stops throughout the city. 

"Last night there was a total of 428 vehicles checked," explained Sgt Kevin Reed. "There were two summary offense tickets under the Traffic Safety Act issued to drivers. Other than that, nobody was found to be impaired by alcohol or drug."

"We also attended to a noisy party complaint in the city core area. En route to the residence, the members noted taxis leaving the area and when they arrived at the residence, the homeowners were the only ones still there. They were still warned under the bylaw."

He added that is was good to see partygoers finding a safe ride home. 

Police also responded to a few other calls.

"Last night the police received a theft of a motor vehicle report. Police investigated and determined that it actually wasn't a theft, it's just someone had permission to have the vehicle but didn't return it in time. The individual returned it prior to the police locating the individual."

"Police also received a request to attempt to locate an individual who was possibly living in Estevan. The RCMP in Regina had called looking for that individual. We attended to the residence and determined they had moved out of the city in July of this year so the RCMP were advised of our findings."
