The Estevan Police Service responded to several calls Wednesday evening and beyond, throughout the night.

"Just before shift change at 5:00 PM, dayshift was called by the electronic monitoring bail supervision people, who monitor people that are released on conditions that are wearing a (tracking) bracelet. They had an alert at a residence here in town," related Sergeant Tyler McMillen.

Police investigated and arrested a 22 year man, and charged with breaching conditions of a release, as well as possession of methamphetamine and heroin. A court appearance was scheduled for Thursday morning.

"Police took a call from a person that reported some harassment. It's an ongoing thing, so police are still investigating. They do have a suspect, and we will be getting in touch with that person to try to clear that up."

"(There was) a report of a suspicious vehicle down in a residential area in the south end of the city. A couple calls were taken on that vehicle, and it was located and turned out to be nothing too serious. It was just somebody that was lost and needed some direction," shared McMillen.

"We were then called up to an establishment on the northeast side of the city, where a patron urinated on the deck of that establishment. The staff called police, and the male was arrested for mischief and lodged in cells for the night until he could sober up."
