A report of a break and enter incident in progress on the city's south side on the night of June 5 turned out to be a domestic dispute that members of the Estevan Police Service (EPS) managed to diffuse before it escalated to a more serious level.
Police learned the nature of the incident when they arrived at the scene of what they originally thought was going to be a break and enter situation. What they discovered was a dispute taking place among family members in the residence, but by intervening, police were able to calm the situation and both parties involved in the dispute departed the scene and went separate ways.
As a result of the incident, an Estevan man was arrested on outstanding warrants and was later released with a scheduled court date.
A call regarding some young people acting in a suspicious manner gained police attention that same evening. The incident occurred on the city's west side. Police were able to locate two young people on foot in the area and a check of these individuals indicated that one of them had an outstanding warrant against him so he was arrested and is now slated for a Weyburn court appearance later this month.
On the night of June 6, police were called to a local park following a report of young people bothering other park users. The young people were spoken to about their actions and sent on their way.
