Police remind residents of the noise bylaw


Along with the nice weather, comes the increase in the number of noise complaints received by Weyburn Police Services.

The noise bylaw covers all hours of the day, so police are asking that residents be respectful of their neighbours.

Last week the police assisted in locating three different individuals who had been reported missing. All three individuals were located and those reporting were notified or put in contact with the person they were seeking.

A taxi driver went to the police station with a very intoxicated male in his cab who had requested to be taken out of town. However, the male had passed out in the cab.

Police were able to locate a safe place for this individual for the night and he was dropped off in the home owners care.

On June 13, a mischief to a building on the west side of the city was reported to police. After responding to an alarm, police and the property representative found that a window had been broken. The matter is under investigation.

Phone scams are starting to appear more often again. Police received reports of two calls being received, one on the June 13, where the caller requested that money be sent through Western Union. The other was on the June 14, when an individual was contacted and told that he needed to send money to help his grandson. The grandson was called and found to be at work.

Members of the public are reminded to take extra precaution when asked to give personal information or to send money to someone you do not know.

Police located a small amount of marihuana hid in the court house on June 12. The subsequent investigation identified a 26-year-old female suspect who was later arrested and charged with possession of cannabis marihuana of less than 30 grams. The accused was released and will be appearing in court later in July.

The Weyburn Police Service received reports of theft from vehicles and damaged mirrors which had occurred on the night of June 11, early morning of the June 12.

Police are again reminding the public to make sure their personal belongings are not left unattended in their vehicles.

An assault was reported to the Weyburn Police Service on the June 11, after an altercation between a 17-year-old and 18-year-old female. Both individuals are known to each other and the matter is still under investigation.

Police were called to a local business on June 10 to a report of an individual that was trying to return items that had been stolen from a similar store in Estevan. The individual was located by police and several stolen items from Estevan were located in the suspect's vehicle. The individual, an adult female, was arrested and charged with theft and possession and was later released to appear in court at a later date.

Anyone with information regarding any of the above crimes, or any other serious crime, are encouraged to contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477), or the Weyburn Police Service.
