It's been a busy week for the Weyburn police service.

January 30th: 

  • The Weyburn Police responded to a complaint of a vehicle colliding with a building in the downtown core. The damage was only superficial and no further action was taken.

February 3rd:

  • At about 10:20 p.m. the Weyburn Police were dispatched to Bean Crescent regarding a report of a disturbance. Upon arrival it was learned that a number of youth aged 15-16 carried over an incident from school that led to a minor altercation. All parties were warned of their actions and advised that they each could have been charged under the Fighting Bylaw.

 February 4th:

  • At about 12:50 a.m. the Weyburn Police responded to a domestic dispute in progress. Upon arrival it was learned that the 43 year old male had assaulted his 34 year old spouse and 5 year old child. He was taken into custody without incident and was later released on strict conditions.
  • The Weyburn Police conducted a compliance check in relation to the above incident and found the accused to be present in violation of his earlier imposed release conditions. He was arrested without incident and has been remanded in custody.
  • At about 9:40 p.m. the Weyburn Police conducted a traffic stop. During the stop it became apparent that there was a small amount marijuana in the vehicle as well as open alcohol. A ticket was issued for the alcohol infraction.

February 5th: 

  • At about 2:40 a.m. the Weyburn Police conducted a traffic stop. The 26 year old male driver was found to be driving under the influence of alcohol and was issued a 72 hour driving suspension and the vehicle was impounded for 3 days.
  • At about 6:45 a.m. the Weyburn Police received a 911 call from a distraught male. After learning that the call came from the hospital Members attended only to find that the 24 year old male had fled on foot and was believed to be suffering from Mental Health issues. He was apprehended after a short foot pursuit and taken into custody to be seen by a Mental Health professional.
  • The Weyburn Police received a report of a vehicle having made a U-Turn on a street nearly causing a collision. We wish to remind drivers that U-Turns are only permitted; where allowed by a sign or at an intersection that is not controlled by traffic lights. U-Turn's mid-block are a violation of the Traffic Bylaw for the very reason noted.

February 6th:

  • At about 1:10 a.m. the Weyburn Police received a call from a concerned citizen regarding a possible impaired driver. The vehicle was located and as a result a 23 year old male has been charged with Impaired Driving offences.

We as a Police Service are extremely disappointed at the number of drinking drivers we see on the streets on a weekly basis. While the situations noted in the police report each ended with nothing more than charges, for the 2nd time in less than 3 weeks a Weyburn area man has been involved in and charged with Impaired Driving Causing Death. The latest was a collision yesterday on Hwy # 39 that took the life of an innocent driver.

During the past week we also received numerous calls about Canada Revenue Agency scams. We continually remind people that unless you have been involved with CRA and have received formal documentation through the mail, they will never call and attempt to obtain information or make threats about collecting taxes. There were also several other forms of on-line scams reported this week.
