Several calls including a hit and run that wasn't, what appeared to be a break-in, mischief-makers on a roof, and a family feud kept the Estevan Police Service busy over the Wednesday night shift.

"We had a hit and run that was reported last week. The matter was still under investigation and it was determined through evidence that was gathered that an actual hit and run did not happen. The suspect was brought in and a statement was taken from them in regards to a public mischief," related Sergeant Tyler McMillan, "Public Mischief is when somebody reports something and causes the police to enter an investigation when it's not true. The person, because they came around and ended up telling the truth, were given a Justice Warning Letter."

Officers also attended the Hillcrest School to the report of a couple of young people on the roof. They were sent away and warned about trespassing.

"We also had a call to the west end of the city. A passersby saw somebody crawling in a basement window, so they were thinking a break and enter was occurring. It was determined that it was just a couple of young guys, one buddy came over to visit his friend and didn't want to wake the parents upstairs so he'd crawled through the window. There was no urgency there, but we thank the passerby that called that in. It was very helpful, and we're glad that neighbors were watching out for each other," said McMillan.

Before the night was over, members were called to an apartment building in the central part of the city, to reports loud crashing and banging, as well as yelling.

"We spoke to one male at an apartment, he'd had a disagreement with his brother and his brother had left for the night. There was no damage, nobody injured, and they were told to keep the noise down, they were waking up people in their building. We appreciated the call from the caller from that one, and I believe things settled down because we never got called back."
