The Estevan Police Service was kept busy with rascals, as well as unfortunate mishaps, throughout the Tuesday night shift.

"One was a vehicle on Kensington. Apparently, the truck and trailer combination was driving northbound on Kensington Avenue when the trailer came unhooked from the truck, and subsequently had some traffic snafu there for a little bit," shared Sergeant Craig Bird, "The person was able to get the trailer hooked back up to the vehicle and was able to remove it."

During the night officers had received a report of pylons stolen from a construction site. They were located a short time later, set out and blocking a street. Police then retrieved them and placed them back where they belonged.

A little while later, the EPS received another complaint regarding the same construction site. The pylons were missing once again. In the meantime, another report came in regarding a vehicle carousing around in the Hillcrest and Pleasantdale area, striking the curb-side dumpsters that had been set out by residents for the morning garbage collection. 

Then, police heard that pylons were blocking off the intersection of Kensington Avenue and 4th Street, and they once again attended, collected the pylons and returned them.

"Through a little bit of investigation and doing some patrol work, we ended up locating the suspect vehicle which, of course the pylons and the driving into the garbage cans were all related," Bird said.

"Youth, with a vehicle, had taken some construction pylons and removed them, and were basically placing them in different parts of the city, blocking off the roads."

Three young males and a young female were all arrested, and at least two were charged with counts of Mischief under the Criminal Code, while the driver of the vehicle was charged under the Traffic Safety Act. The vehicle was also impounded for the investigation, which is ongoing. The youngsters are set to appear in court in December.

Several incidents also kept the EPS busy during the day shift.

"A male was picked up around 11:00 AM and arrested for impaired driving in the downtown (area). From what I understand, there was a Report Impaired Driver call in regards to this matter, so that put our Combined Traffic Safety Unit and all our patrol members on alert. We ended up locating the vehicle, obviously, and charged the male driver with impaired driving," Bird related.

The 55 year old appears in court to answer to his charges in October.

Other items dealt with during the day included 10 tickets handed out for unregistered vehicles parked on the street, more calls about a STARS Lottery scam, and a theft from a local business.
