Several incidents kept the Estevan Police Service busy through out Tuesday and overnight.
During the day shift, officers attended a two vehicle collision at 6th Street and 13th Avenue. Injuries were minor, with one female going to hospital in an ambulance, while the driver and a male in the second vehicle being taken for assessment as well. Both vehicles had to be towed.
"One of the drivers was charged for failing to yield to an approaching vehicle when turning left in that matter," said Sergeant Craig Bird.
Other events of the day included a complaint of a break and enter, which is under investigation, and the complaint of mischief and theft from a storage facility in the industrial area on the east side of town, also still under investigation.
"Last night we had a little bit more excitement. We got a call from a local business about a possible impaired driver, and just as the call came in, our member ran across this person and ended up doing a traffic stop. A 28 year old Manitoba male was checked with a roadside screening device and failed, and was subsequently arrested and brought back to the EPS where an impaired investigation began," Bird shared.
"The male was eventually charged with impaired driving and operating a motor vehicle while over .08."
He was lodged in cells until sober, and then released for an October court date.
Officers also dealt with a suspicious vehicle that turned out to be nothing more than someone leaving their's there for an extended period of time, as well as an investigation into an assault.
