The Weyburn Police Service had a busy week last week, with 71 calls for service the week of January 30th through to February 5th.
In total, there were 24 charges, with 14 Criminal Code of Canada charges, seven charges under the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act and three under the Traffic Safety Act.
Many of those charges stemmed from a search warrant executed on a residence in Weyburn on Friday. You can read more about that here.
Some of the incidents that occurred over the past week are underscored below:
Deputy Chief, Brent VanDeSype, with the Weyburn Police Service, explained more about a medical emergency that occurred.
"On Wednesday afternoon, our office was contacted to assist EMS with a medical emergency involving a person in cardiac arrest, or a suspected drug overdose. Unfortunately, EMS attended, found them unresponsive, and were unable to revive them. Our hearts go out to the family and loved ones."
VanDeSype commented on a report of a break and enter to a residence that occurred, where both parties were known to each other.
"It's been kind of an ongoing dispute. Two of the individuals found their way into the other person's place of residence and kind of ransacked it and stole some items, so they're now facing charges of theft. As well, one of them had warrants out for their arrest, so that was executed as well, and a couple of counts of failing to comply with the conditions of their release."
On Friday afternoon, someone called 911 to Report Impaired Driving (RID) about an erratic driver, after they witnessed the driver swerving, and driving over the curb onto the sidewalk.
"A vigilant caller noticed the vehicle being driven erratically in an unsafe manner and called 911 to report a suspected impaired driver. The vehicle was located, and the driver subsequently was charged with impaired driving."
Some of the other calls the Weyburn Police Service responded to last week included thefts to a local business where the young individuals were warned at the complainant's request, and returned to the store to pay for the stolen items, alarms, domestic disturbances, suspicious persons or vehicles, mental health concerns, wellbeing checks, harassing communications and animal and bylaw concerns.
Anyone with information regarding any of these matters, is encouraged to contact the Weyburn Police Service at 306-848-3250, the local RCMP Detachment at 310-7267, or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
