A traffic stop was initiated in central Estevan that resulted in an Estevan man having his driver’s licence suspended for 21 days as a result of a roadside screening test for alcohol.

Members attempted a traffic stop in northeast Estevan Friday as a result of excessively high speeds. The driver of the vehicle refused to stop and fled. The vehicle is described as a smaller, dark-coloured four-door car. If anyone has any information regarding this matter, please call the Estevan Police Service.

As a result of a traffic stop near the city, a 32-year-old woman from Estevan provided a sample of breath into an approved screening device, which resulted in a warn for alcohol. She was issued a 21-day driving suspension and the vehicle she was operating was impounded for 30 days.

Police attended to a northwest Estevan residence on the report of a suspicious vehicle in the area. The vehicle was found and stopped by police and sent on their way as there were no issues or concerns observed.

The EPS received reports of a couple of scams. One was the Canada Revenue Agency scam. The other was a person saying the potential victim was to receive an inheritance as they were the only next of kin of an individual that had died. The public is again reminded to be mindful of these and other types of scams and under no circumstance provide any information.
