The Estevan Police Service had a busy night shift on Friday.

"We ended up starting to do condition checks on people with court ordered conditions and during that time one person was checked and we found them to be in possession of drugs, so they were subsequently arrested for that and taken into custody," stated Sergeant Craig Bird. 

"The person will be taken up to Regina to appear in court on Monday to answer to all of the charges that have been laid." 

The charges laid include breaching of conditions and possession of a controlled substance. 

"Then we were doing regular patrols, stopping a few vehicles and looking for impaired drivers. Luckily nobody was foolish enough to drive impaired, which is always nice to see," he shared. 

"We located a running vehicle that was left in a residential area and we subsequently locked the vehicle and secured it. We're going to have to talk with the owner and just let them know that it's not very good to have a running vehicle without it being locked."

"It is against the bylaw to have an unattended vehicle running and not locked and you could face a fine." 

"We found an insecure business in the city's business area and we were fortunately able to secure the building and we will notify the owner just to make sure nothing else had taken place."
