While it wasn't an overly hectic night shift for the Estevan Police Service, several incidents certainly kept them occupied for the evening.
"It wasn't too bad of a night. We checked lots of vehicles for impaired driving and sobriety. One vehicle was stopped, and he was given a three day suspension and his vehicle was seized. Further checks of his driver's license showed that he was on conditions not to consume alcohol, so he had breached, he had charges out of Regina. He was eventually released from police custody after he was served with his documents for court," related Sergeant Tyler McMillan.
Officers then received a call to a local downtown establishment.
"Three individuals walked out with open liquor, and got into a taxi. Police responded and one of them were with having and consuming alcohol in a vehicle, and they were sent on their way shortly after."
"Then, a couple alarm calls to different commercial properties in the city, but they turned out to be false, which was good," added McMillan.
Members also conducted patrols of industrial and commercial areas to keep an eye out for thievery.
During Thursday's day shift, officers were looking into a report of a stolen bicycle from a residence on the north end of the city, and investigating a report of mischief to a vehicle in the same area. Damage was observed and police are in the process of speaking to suspects and witnesses.
