Several arrests were made by the Estevan Police Service over the night shift Friday.

"A 21 year old female was arrested for impaired driving...(and) we had another male arrested for Breach of Probation, and another female arrested on warrants out of the Regina Police Service and our department," said Constable Dan DeChief.

He also noted that, despite the extremely slick road conditions, motorists in Estevan were driving safe.

"Yesterday we didn't have anything that was reportable, so to speak. There was a few people bumping into each other, but that was taken care of by SGI, nothing alarming. No serious accidents at all."

However, that's not to say that vehicles had their share of traction issues. Police did have to attend a scene at the Highway 39 overpass where a semi/trailer unit was unable to climb the hill. Officers provided traffic control while the unit backed up, and once the sanding truck made a pass, the semi succeeded in his second attempt.

Members also spent time trailing school buses around the city at the end of school to monitor other people's driving actions when the buses stopped with arms out and lights flashing. One violation occurred and is under investigation. Failure to stop for school bus with it's stop arm out and lights flashing is a $360 fine.

Police also received a report of an attempted fraud. An unknown caller to an Estevan resident stated that they were in trouble and that the caller could help. No information was exchanged, however, and the matter concluded without further incident.
