Monday night turned out to be a busy one for those on the night shift with the Estevan Police Service.

"We were dispatched to the south end of the city to a little bit of a disturbance down there. Upon arrival, the suspects had left the area prior to us getting there. One was identified by the complainants, he was spoken to and warned not to go back around there," related Sergeant Tyler McMillan.

"Shortly after that, we were dispatched to the north side of the city just after 6:00 PM. Upon arrival there, a 41 year old man was arrested for assault and an investigation revealed that just a common assault occurred, and he was released before a Justice of the Peace later on that evening."

Officers then responded to an alarm at a downtown business, and found everything secure, then attended another disturbance in the south end of town. Nothing criminal had taken place, and one person took their leave.

"We were called about a possible impaired driver leaving a downtown establishment. One of the suspect vehicles was located, and the driver checked on the roadside device. He was just under the provincial .04 level, so he was sent on his way. Then after that, we were called to a disturbance or noise on the north end of the city. We were able to meet up with some citizens there and come to a positive resolution with them during the night," McMillan shared.

"Then in the early morning hours we were dispatched to the northeast side of the city to another noise-type disturbance in an apartment building. (We) spoke to two roommates, just us being there seemed to settle them down and no further calls for assistance came from that location."

Members also took care of a number of situations over Sunday's night shift, including a license plate stolen from a vehicle sitting in the parking lot of Walmart, an impaired driver, an alarm, a check of a male on electronic monitoring, and charging a 51 year old female for Theft under $5,000, stemming from a wallet that was turned into police the day before.
