Two of the five people arrested have been released.

ESTEVAN - The Estevan Police Service has released more information regarding the increased police presence at the Willow Park Greens Home Park in the south end of the city on Tuesday.

Five people were arrested and taken into custody without incident, according to Deputy Chief Murray Cowan. Two of those people were released during the night. Charges are pending.

“Members are continuing to investigate and further details related to the evidence seized at the scene, as well as charges, etcetera, will be released in the coming hours,” said Cowan.

Cowan noted that at approximately 10 a.m. Tuesday, officers attended to a residence in the 100-block of Willow Park Greens to execute a search warrant. Members of the Estevan and Weyburn Police Services’ joint tactical support team, along with the EPS crisis negotiators, K9 unit and forensic units were involved. The RCMP also provided assistance.

The investigation was being led by the EPS criminal investigations unit as well as the drug intelligence unit.

The area remained cordoned off well into the night, he said, as forensics and criminal investigating units searched and processed the scene.

The scene has since been cleared and barricades have been removed.

Officers worked well into the night on the investigation and continue to work on the file, Cowan said.

The EPS said Tuesday morning no risk to public safety existed, but police asked the public to avoid the barricaded area to allow for on-scene investigators to process the site.  

In addition to police, other emergency crews were at the scene.
