ESTEVAN - Three people are facing multiple charges after the Estevan Police Service received a complaint for theft of tools from a local business' work trucks this week.
As a result of investigation started on Aug. 16, three individuals have been charged with possession of property obtained by crime, possession of break and enter instruments and theft under $5,000. Two of the males remained in police custody and will appear in court Aug. 18.
A warrant has been sought for the arrest of the third individual, who is also facing charges of theft under $5,000. Police determined a fuel theft complaint from a local business on the evening of Aug. 17 was as a result of this third individual and was related to these incidents.
The EPS has also announced arrests in connection with a theft from a business in the Estevan Market Mall last month.
Police have charged a 24-year-old woman and 22-year-old woman, both from Estevan, with theft under $5,000. Police were able to identify the two women that were the subject of a media request for assistance.
Officers reached out to the two in regards to the ongoing investigation and on Aug. 15, they turned themselves into the EPS. Both have co-operated with the investigation and have since been released for court in September. A number of stolen items were also recovered and will be returned to the store.
Police want to thank the public for their assistance with this investigation.
Police conducted a traffic stop on the east end of Estevan on Aug. 15. The male driver was checked on the roadside oral fluid device and had a positive result for cannabis. The driver has a Novice 2 graduated driver’s licence. A check of the SGI system showed this to be his second roadside suspension and as a result, he received a 120-day driving suspension.
Police were called to the 1200-block of Eighth Street. A resident was awakened by his dog barking. When he looked out, a person was jumping the fence and running away. At this time it is not known if anything is missing. Police are asking for residents to check their yards and sheds in the area to make sure nothing is missing. If you do notice something missing or have video surveillance of the suspect, please call the EPS at 306-634-4767.
