The Weyburn Police Service dealt with a variety of issues last week with an average number of calls, 84 in all during the period of November 7th through November 13th, resulting in a total of 17 charges. Of the charges, seven were laid under the Criminal Code of Canada

A man was charged with assault in the early hours last Monday following a domestic disturbance, and he will appear in court.

Another man drove off with over $150 of fuel and was charged with the theft.  In fact, video surveillance shows him filling his vehicle and driving off quickly without even putting on his gas cap.

Both vehicles were damaged but nobody was injured in a two-vehicle collision in which one vehicle backed into the pathway of another vehicle, after which a woman was charged under the Traffic Safety Act for unsafe backing.

An impaired driver was removed from the road thanks to an alert driver reporting it to the police by calling 9-1-1. Police say they were observed swerving from side to side on the highway. A man was arrested and charged for impaired operation of a conveyance and was released with an upcoming court date.

The Weyburn Police are reminding residents to do what this person did, and call 911 to report an impaired driver (RID) even if they're unsure if that's the reason for their erratic driving.

Officers responding to a domestic dispute discovered one of the individuals had an outstanding warrant for their arrest. Officers executed the warrant and released her with an upcoming court appearance. During the incident, officers also discovered she unlawfully possessed unmarked tobacco and subsequently charged her under the Tobacco Tax Act.

A variety of other calls also came in to the police last week, including alarms, domestic disturbances, suspicious persons or vehicles, mental health concerns, as well as requests to check on an individual's wellbeing, harassing communications, and calls relating to animals or bylaw concerns.

Anyone with information regarding one of these matters, or any other matter of a criminal nature, is encouraged to contact the Weyburn Police Service at (306) 848-3250, the local RCMP Detachment at 310-RCMP (7267), or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
