Several different incidents overnight kept the Estevan Police Service busy, including intoxication, a case of what appears to be accidental theft, and those pesky scams again.

"We had an occurrence where a male was called in for walking down the middle of Souris Avenue and Highway 47. The male was very intoxicated and was located passed out in a ditch. He was subsequently charged for failing to comply with his probation order, and lodged in cells until sober," shared Sergeant Evan Handley.

"Members attended a local business after someone failed to pay for their fuel. The RO (Registered Owner) of the vehicle was contacted and he returned and paid for the fuel immediately."

Police also received quite a few more complaints regarding CRA or STARS Lottery frauds.

"We remind the public to not provide any information over the phone to people you do not know," said Handley.

Meanwhile, during the day on Thursday officers responded to a motor vehicle accident at the intersection of Alexandria Avenue and King Street. Both vehicles were towed from the scene and one of the drivers was transported to hospital by ambulance, then released shortly thereafter. One driver was charged with Following Too Closely.

More scams were reported by residents, including one where someone was told via an email in their spam folder that their internet history would be released if cash was not sent. The complainant didn't respond or relay any information back. 

Investigations were also opened into a couple of other matters. These include a report of uttered threats, and a vehicle that was borrowed and not returned in a timely manner.
