It was a busy Tuesday for members of the Estevan Police Service as they dealt with incidents involving both drugs and alcohol.
"Around 4 PM, our officers stopped a vehicle on Kensington, and the driver was found to be impaired by alcohol. The subject provided breath samples as required, and has subsequently been charged with impaired driving as a result," related Police Chief Paul Ladouceur.
"Within minutes of that stop, the officers stopped a second vehicle, and that driver ended up blowing a warning, which resulted in the vehicle being towed and his license being suspended for a period of three days."
He expressed that it's pretty concerning to find drunk drivers at 4 in the afternoon on a Tuesday, but that's why the EPS is out looking at all times.
Later that evening, officers pulled another vehicle over and subsequently charged several youth with possession of marijuana.
Ladouceur also reminded people that, until cannabis officially becomes legal, it is still against the law until then.
