A 911 call, a stand-off, and a fight were all items that the Estevan Police Service had to handle throughout the Thursday nightshift.

Officers answered a 911 hang-up call and a commotion could be heard in the background. Members attended to the caller's location to check on her safety, but they were then told that the call was made accidentally, and that all was well.

Police then went to arrest a 56 year old male, for a breach of recognizance.

"The male was confronted by police when they learned that he was outside of his residence without permission. The male had refused to comply with police and (then) would not exit his residence," stated Constable Lana Gropp, "More members attended to the area, and police negotiated with the male."

The situation began to go south when at on point the man brandished a knife, still refusing to exit the building.

"Police were able to reach the male on the phone and convince him to exit the residence. He was then arrested without incident."

Officers were then called to a local drinking establishment, where it appeared that fists were about to fly between two males. However, when the police arrived, the fight had remained at the verbal level, and it was broken up and the parties sent on their way.

The dayshift saw police receive a complaint of a 7 year old boy walking and playing in the puddles on Perkins. He was located and taken to his mother, who was working a short distance away.

Officers also attended a local business after a complaint was received regarding  suspicious white powder on a package. However, it tested negative for any controlled substances.

Members also did a well-being check on a 73 year old female. She was found in good health and spoken to by members.
