Last week was busy for the Weyburn Police Service, with 109 calls for service, resulting in 24 charges. 

Officers were called to a local business to assist Emergency Medical Services with a suspected drug overdose last Monday. A man was transported to Weyburn General Hospital for further assessment. 

A bicycle was reported stolen overnight on Tuesday. It is described as a black, red, and grey GT Avalanche. 

A traffic stop was conducted on a vehicle observed to be exceeding the speed limit. An oral fluid demand was made on the driver who tested positive for cannabis. The woman was charged for speeding, and also received a 7-day license suspension and a 7-day vehicle impound. 

On Thursday police busted a female driver. The woman was charged with Driving while Prohibited, Impaired Operation of a Conveyance, Possession of Fentanyl, and Breach of Probation. Police also executed an arrest warrant on the adult passenger in the vehicle at the time. 

On Saturday morning officers conducted a traffic stop on a vehicle and found the driver to be displaying signs of impairment as well as observing open alcohol in the vehicle. The stop resulted in the woman receiving a 60-day driver’s license suspension and 3-day vehicle impound. The passenger was charged with unlawfully having open alcohol in the vehicle.   

A driver is facing several charges after striking a power pole while trying to stop for members of the Weyburn Police Service on Saturday evening. The driver had numerous outstanding warrants for his arrest. He faces charges of Possession of Methamphetamine for the Purpose of Trafficking, Possession of Property Obtained by Crime, Possession of a Weapon for a Dangerous Purpose, Carrying a Concealed Weapon, Failure to Comply with Release Conditions, and Driving a Vehicle Without Due Care and Attention. He was remanded in custody.  

Police also warn of a phishing scam thanks to reports of an email being sent out saying that the victim’s SaskTel bill has not been paid. The email includes a link for the customer to click to “complete payment.” Those reporting the incidents recognized it as a scam, and no losses have been reported.
