Officers responded to a report of a suspicious vehicle in north Estevan. Patrols were made and no vehicle matching the description was located.

Police dealt with a report of a hit and run accident that took place in the Walmart parking lot last week. The incident was reported during the Jan. 7 day shift. The vehicle sustained moderate damage and the offending driving left without providing information. Police are asking for the public’s assistance in this matter.

Members also dealt with a report of a person causing issues in a downtown business. Police attended and escorted the individual out of the building without incident and warned the patron not to return.

Police responded to a request from the public about a suspicious package that was found. The early indication was that the packet contained street drugs. Police attended and secured the packet and after some testing found that it did not contain any illegal substances.

Officers received a call from an elderly male who stated two people were in his house during the Jan. 6 night shift. An investigation revealed that the male is in a medical facility and was confused. The residence was checked and there was nobody there. Staff at the facility were contacted and advised.

Police performed curfew and conditions checks on a few different people that night. One man was not at home when police were there. The matter remains under investigation to see if he had permission from a bail supervisor to be out.
