The Weyburn Police Service (WPS) had a busy past few days, for the week of May 1st to 7th. They dealt with 100 calls, which resulted in 22 charges total.
The WPS wanted to remind residents to remove any valuables from their vehicles and lock their doors, as "car-diggings" or vehicle rummaging and bicycle thefts are more common during the summer months.
Some of the incidents highlighted from their weekly release included an adult male being charged with assault after a domestic dispute.
A different adult male was arrested and charged for not following one of his release conditions.
The 911 operator could hear voices in the background when they spoke with the caller, but the caller hung up before the operator could get any information from them. The 911 operator tried to call the caller back, but was unable to get ahold of them, despite several attempts. When WPS arrived at the place that was associated to the caller's phone number, they found the adult male there, and he was not following his release conditions.
The WPS were called to a residence where physical fighting had reportedly occurred. When officers arrived, they saw an adult female outside of the residence who appeared to have facial injuries. She was taken to the Weyburn General Hospital to have her injuries treated, and she was released later that day. Through further investigation, the WPS ended up charging an adult male with assault causing bodily harm in relation to the facial injuries, and he was also released on conditions that he must follow. He has an upcoming court date to speak to his charges.
An adult female is facing several charges, including possession of a controlled substance for the purpose of trafficking, possession of property obtained by crime, as well as several charges for not following the conditions of her release. She was also charged with break, enter, and theft. This matter is still being investigated by the WPS, with more charges pending.
Some of the other calls the WPS dealt with included alarms, domestic disturbances, suspicious persons or vehicles, mental health concerns, requests to check on an individual's wellbeing, harassing communications, and a number of bylaw calls related to animals and parking.
