Residents of Estevan are being advised to 'lock it up' if they're warming up their vehicle.

On Sunday night, a vehicle was stolen from a lounge when it was left running unattended, with the keys inside. Described as a grey Dodge Ram quad cab truck with 'Black Rhino' stickers on the back windows and Alberta license plate CBR 9528, it was last seen on the 200 block of 4th Street.

"Unfortunately, we've had a couple of vehicle thefts here in the last little while," states Sergeant Craig Bird with the Estevan Police Service, "We don't want anybody to suffer through that, so if you're going out to start your vehicles and letting them run, just make sure everything's locked up."

That night, police investigated the report of an impaired driver and conducted curfew checks. During the day on Monday, officers received a Report Impaired Drivers (RID) call for a vehicle leaving the McDonald's parking lot. They patrolled the area but didn't find it, as the license plate given and vehicle description didn't line up. 

Members also conducted a traffic stop on a 34 year old Estevan male who turned out to be a suspended driver. His vehicle was impounded and he was ticketed.

A hit and run in a business parking lot during the dayshift is also under investigation.
