ESTEVAN - Members of the Estevan Police Service apprehended an impaired driver this week, and made a few other arrests.

As a result of a traffic stop on the east side of the city on Oct. 4, a 20-year-old man from Hepburn has been charged with driving while impaired and driving while over .08. His driver’s license has been suspended indefinitely and the vehicle he was operating was impounded for 30 days.

That same day, a 25-year-old man from Estevan was issued a three-day driving suspension, after he tested positive on an oral fluid device for THC, during a traffic stop on Henry Street. His vehicle was also impounded. Charges in the matter are pending the results of a blood demand.

Officers received a complaint of unusual and unidentifiable text messages to a female on Oct. 5. The EPS reminds the public not to provide any personal or financial information to anyone you do not know.

Police received a driving complaint Oct. 6 in relation to a vehicle driving erratically in a local sports venue parking lot. Police attended and issued a summary offence ticket under the Traffic Safety Act for performing a stunt or activity likely to startle or distract other drivers.

Members received a theft of gas complaint from a local gas station. The individual was located and returned to the gas station to pay for the fuel. It was determined that the pay at the pump option didn’t work properly.
