The Weyburn Police Service responded to a number of calls over the past seven days. They dealt with everything from telephone and email scams, to motor vehicle accidents. Police did conduct two check stops over the weekend, and there wasn’t an instance of impaired driving charges being laid during either checkstop. Here is the weekly report issued by the Weyburn Police Service.

The Weyburn Police Service were called to a two vehicle accident on 1st Avenue. The investigation determined that a vehicle driven by a 16 year old boy had hit a parked vehicle. The driver was charged with driving without due care and attention.

A local Business reported to the Weyburn Police that they had received an email that was an attempt to defraud. The email, which indicates it is from Canada Post, requests the recipient of the email print out the label and is to take it to Canada Post to pick up a parcel. Once the label is downloaded this activates a ransomware virus which locks the computer. The sender of the email then demands money to unlock the computer. To help prevent this from occurring to you, police are advising do not open email attachments from anyone you do not know or in emails that arrive unexpected.

The Weyburn Police were called to a disturbance at a local residence. Upon arrival police found one of the occupants extremely intoxicated and being combative to other residents. Police arrested a 39 year old man for Breach of the Peace and he was lodged in cells until sober. No charges were laid.

The caller identified themselves as being from an RCMP Detachment and that they were collecting funds for school presentations. The investigation determined the Detachment was not collecting funds. No money was lost by the victim. Members of the public are again reminded that attempts to defraud can take many forms and you should never send money to anyone you do not know, or that you have confirmed is a legitimate charity.
