ESTEVAN - It's been a busy Saskatchewan Day long weekend for members of the Estevan Police Service.

Officers handled 89 calls for service from Friday evening through Monday morning.

Members are investigating a couple of sexual assaults that were reported. The two incidents aren't related and the EPS is in the early stages of gathering information.

A number of calls were related to mental health. The EPS was able to connect people with services during the weekend.

Police issued a number of tickets for speeding and intersection-related offences.

Officers carried out a number of pro-active traffic stops in which breath samples were taken. Nobody who was checked was impaired.

The EPS received a call during Sunday's night shift that two people had entered a vacant residence in south Estevan. Officers arrived and located them within the residence. The two people were informed they weren't welcome, warned about trespassing in the future and released without charges.

Another trespassing incident came up in which three people were walking on the CP Rail tracks. They were located and warned about the dangers of being on the tracks, especially at night.

Members continue to handle calls for attempted frauds and scams. All were extortion attempts in which people were ordered to send money or the scammers would release personal information. The EPS is not aware of anyone who lost money.
