A series of theft cases were resolved by the Estevan Police Service over the night shift on Wednesday.

"Members interviewed a young person in regards to a shoplifting incident in a local business. That person was charged with theft under $5,000 and released for court at a later date," shared Sergeant Tyler McMillan.

"With another investigation, another shoplifting theft from a local business. Charges have been done up, the adult female is now wanted. She doesn't live in our jurisdiction but we have identified her, so we've sent messages to the assisting agency to see if they can pick her up for us."

While those files were concluded by officers, others are still wide open.

"Another one is in regards to a theft of some fish out of a backyard pond. Unfortunately, there's not enough evidence yet to make an arrest, but there are a couple of suspects and the file is still under investigation," McMillan said.

During Wednesday's day shift, members responded to the report of someone rifling through vehicles in a downtown business parking lot. The individual was located and the matter is under investigation. 

The day also saw officers attend to a vehicle that had activated it's OnStar alarm. It was located and occupants checked, and it turned out that a toddler had pressed the button without the parent's knowledge. No further police action was required.
