The Weyburn Police Service responded to 114 calls for service last week, resulting in a total of 30 charges.  

Of the charges, 23 were laid under the Criminal Code of Canada, three under the traffic safety Act, two under the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act, and two under the Summary Offences Procedure Act. Most criminal charges were a result of the failure to comply with a condition of their release or failing to appear in court. 

On Wednesday, May 25, officers responded to a domestic disturbance which resulted in a man being arrested and taken into custody. When officers arrived on the scene they discovered 6.5 ounces of methamphetamine. The man faces several charges including assault, possession of property obtained by crime, failing to comply with a probation order, and two charges of possession of a controlled substance for the purpose of trafficking.
