A further search of the vehicle has led to a 27-year-old man from Stoughton and a 19-year-old woman from Weyburn facing charged for possession of fentanyl. They will appear in court in February 2021 to answer to the charges.

As a result of a complaint from the public and consultation with Public Health, a 44-year-old man was charged Friday under the Public Health Act for refusing to wear a mask in a public place. He was issued a fine of $2,800 for the offence and will appear in court to answer to the charge.

Police responded to a two-vehicle collision at the corner of King Street and Kensington Avenue on Thursday. One vehicle needed to be towed from the scene and a motorist was charged with driving too fast for road conditions and driving without a valid driver’s licence under the Traffic Safety Act. He will appear in court in January to answer to the charges.

Members of the Combined Traffic Service of Saskatchewan unit did mandatory breath tests on a motorist Thursday night. A 21-year-old man was issued a 60-day drivers licence suspension and had his vehicle seized for 72 hours.
