The Estevan Police Service reported dealing with 41 occurrences Friday through Sunday, and shed some light on a Monday call to a reported break-and-enter.

EPS said the report of a break-and-enter in progress on the west side of the city Monday turned out to be a dispute between neighbours, and not a break-and-enter.

Police helped resolve the dispute.

EPS reported being dispatched to a range of calls from Friday through Sunday, including multiple reports of fraud, an indecent act, harassment, and several bylaw-related calls for improper parking.

Here are the details police gave on the weekend's calls:


Police received a complaint of criminal harassment.  The matter is still under investigation.

Police received a complaint of vehicles being parked illegally at the Power Dodge Ice Center.  Police attended and issued a number of parking tickets.

While out on patrol, Police located individuals setting off fireworks within the city limits. They were warned of the by-law and sent on their way.


Police received a report of suspicious persons with flashlights looking around property shortly after 6 a.m.  Police located the individuals and determined everything was fine.

Police attended with Emergency Medical Services and assisted with two separate calls during the day.

Police received a report of an individual possibly trespassing on commercial property.  Police attended and didn’t locate anyone in the area.


Police received a report of vehicles speeding on a residential street in the Pleasantdale area. Members monitored the area and did not locate any such offences.

Police received a report of a missing youth. The youth was later located at another residence and the matter resolved.

Police attended to an intrusion alarm at a business on the east side of the city. Members located an employee that had just closed up for the night and mistakenly entered an incorrect code when setting the alarm.

As a result of an investigation of mischief, a 43-year-old male from Estevan was arrested and charged after damaging a window at a residence.  He also had outstanding warrants from another agency.  He was released with court dates in December to speak to those charges.
