A busy night for police

License Comments

Estevan Police Service personnel were kept busy tending to a variety of incidents in the city on the night of July 5 beginning with a call to the east side to deal with what had been reported as a disturbance.

Once they arrived ,police engaged a male subject and eventually determined that the issue was not a major one and the man had been talking with a neighbour and the conversation had gotten a little loud but there was no major dispute involved so the matter was closed.

Police were next called to a local convenience store on the city's north side in response to a theft of some cigarettes. The subject had snatched the cigarettes and had run out of the store. The matter is under investigation.

Later on in the evening, a 24-year-old man was charged with driving while his blood-alcohol level was over .08 per cent and impaired driving. Police had noted the man leaving a local lounge near closing time and made the arrest. The man now has a July 30 court date.

EPS members also arrested a 23-year-old man for being intoxicated in public after he left a local lounge and began walking into traffic. He was arrested for his own safety and was charged accordingly.

An incident involving a second intoxicated man was responded to by police after they received a call regarding a man knocking at the door of a residence and attempting to enter without the resident's permission. Police conducted an extensive search of the neighbourhood after arriving on the scene, but were unable to come up with a suspect.

To wind up their night and early morning call schedules, police made a visit to a home on the east side of the city in response to a barking dog complaint. The owner was warned about the city's bylaws that addressed that issue, so the dog was taken into the residence and the matter was concluded.
