Also on Tuesday, police attended to a south end residence for a report of an individual acting very suspiciously. The individual lived in the area and was confused. Police were able to calm the individual down for the evening.

Police also attended to two motor vehicle accidents during the day. The damage was minimal and no injuries were reported from either accident. With the current road conditions, police are recommending people slow down, drive cautiously and not be in a hurry.

Police received a report Monday of a suspicious person wandering around a local hotel. Members attended and were not able to locate anyone in the area.

Officers arrested a 38-year-old woman who is on a conditional sentence order. She failed to attend court for a hearing in regards to an allegation of breaching that order. She will be scheduled to appear in court on Thursday to answer to the breach allegations.

Police were able to execute a couple of other arrest warrants during the day. Two people turned themselves into the police station and were later released with a new court date.

Members received report of theft of property from a vehicle Sunday. The EPS asks people to remember to move items out of sight and secure your vehicles to prevent this type of theft. The matter is still under investigation.

Police received reports of individuals taking advantage of the free landfill weekend but that they were losing items off their vehicles or trailer on their way to the landfill. Please be reminded that it is the driver’s responsibility to secure loads so that this type of thing doesn’t happen. Several individuals were warned and the items were cleaned up.
