ESTEVAN — The Estevan Police Service dealt with 46 occurrences over the weekend of May 24-26.

Calls for service included reports of suspicious persons, frauds, harassment, sextortion, breaching the peace and noise bylaw complaints. Police also issued several tickets for offences under the Traffic Safety Act.

Police attended to two separate vehicle collisions. No injuries were reported, and the vehicles required towing.

Police were dispatched to a disturbance at a local liquor establishment where a 47-year-old man was arrested and charged with assaulting a police officer. He was transported to cells and released when sober. He will appear in court to speak to the charge at a later date.

Police also received a report of a driver accidentally colliding with vehicles that were parked in an apartment complex parking lot. The driver was advised to leave notes on the victims' vehicles with the driver's contact information, and to follow up with SGI. No further police involvement was required.

On May 26, EPS members were also dispatched to a north-central convenience store/gas station to a report of a woman who appeared to be unconscious in the driver's seat of a vehicle. The vehicle was gone upon police arrival, and patrols in the area did not locate the vehicle or occupant.

EPS also received a report of suspicious activity in the 1300 blocks of Second and Third Streets, in which individuals were trying door handles in backyards. The EPS reminds the public to secure their belongings.

"The Estevan Police Service would like to remind the public to ensure that their vehicles are secured while parked and that all valuables are removed. It is also a good idea to ensure that any outdoor buildings are locked as well. Should you see any suspicious activity, please call the police immediately with the information, including descriptions of the subjects and last known direction of travel, as this information greatly assists police during investigations," the EPS said in the report.
