The Estevan Police Service had a few calls last night. Sergeant Craig Bird, "We are dealing with a theft that was reported from a local business. The matter is currently under investigation as we are trying to obtain some video footage of the incident, so we will be pursuing and investigating that."

"We delt with some people drinking and being outside. Tis the season for Christmas Parties and what not, so people go out and unfortunately take their beverage outside as well with them. We handed out several warnings for people drinking outside when they weren't supposed to be and unfortunately a couple of people were issued tickets for that."

Stg. Bird adds, "Again people still aren't learning about taking a safe ride home. we got a couple of calls about possible drunk drivers, so followed up and investigated that as well. Unfortunately, that is still happening but tis the Christmas season so we are stepping up our enforcement with Christmas parties and whatnot going on. Most businesses are pretty good about providing transportation for their employees if they've been out drinking. We still want to remind people that it's not good to drink and drive, and there are enough cabs in town that they should either take a cab or find a safe ride home."
