A busy evening of mischief, noise, investigations, patrol and traffic stops was conducted by the Estevan Police Service for the Wednesday nightshift.

"Last night, police concluded an investigation that was initiated on Tuesday in regards to a Sasktel wire that was pulled down across the alley of the 1000 block of 3rd street. Damage was done to the wire as well as a residential building," stated Sergeant Tyler McMillen, "The offending vehicle (a delivery truck) was located by police, and the driver...was very cooperative. There is no suspicion of malicious intent there, he most likely did not realize that he had pulled down that wire. We assisted with exchanging information, so anybody can do the reports through insurance or anything that needs to be repaired. The Sasktel line was fixed and put back up, and the homeowner will have to get repairs to his residential outbuilding."

"Police also received a call of mischief. The report was, two vehicles were driving around town, one suspect was throwing something at the other vehicle while they drove. The complainants attended the Estevan Police Service, as did the suspect, and the matter remains under investigation."

Officers were called out to a noise complaint on the northwest side of town, where the homeowner was warned about the bylaw. 

Members also conducted patrols in the industrial and commercial parts of the city, as well as property checks around the rinks. Checkstops on vehicles leaving various events were also done.

McMillen thanked motorists for driving safely in the icy fog.
