The police detachment in Maidstone dealt with a number of calls for service between June 26 and July 2, with the most common being in relation to breaches of conditions, as well as liqour offences, along with break and enters.
The most interesting calls were summed in their latest weekly report. According to the information released by the detachment, members were sent to a disturbance in Marshall, Sask, on June 26, where it was reported that two men were fighting a woman after she had damaged a truck. When police arrived, all three were arrested. The investigation is ongoing, and no charges have yet been laid.
The following day, police were sent to a residence in Maidstone, Sask, for a reported breach of conditions by a 58 year old male. When they arrived, they found a drunken man who had breached his conditions, who was subsequently brought in front of a judge. Later on the same date, police went to Sandy Beach Regional Park, where they warned a group of youth about open liqour. No formal charges were laid.
The next day, members of the detachment and the Enhanced Policing Unit were sent to a rural location near Waseca, Sask, for a reported break and enter, during which several vehicles were stolen. According to police, the theft took place between 3:00 p.m. and 6:00 p.m. when two trucks went to the location and took two motorbikes, a red Polaris 400 ATV, and a Kawasaki side by side, along with tools and other items. The investigation is ongoing.
Another theft took place on June 29, after a break and enter was reported at a rural location in the RM of Britannia. It was reported that eight rifles, ammunition and cash were stolen, despite all the stolen property being secured at the time of the thefts. The Maidstone RCMP is working in conjunction with the Lloydminster RCMP GIS and Crime Reduction Unit and the investigation is ongoing, and tips can be directed to the Maidstone detachment or Crimestoppers.
Two other calls of interest about vehicles were also included in the report, with a complaint of an RV being all over the road being received through 911 on June 30. Police patrolled Highway 16 near Maidstone and located the RV. A 31 year old male from Fort Mcmurray, Alberta, was arrested for impaired operations of a motor vehicle. Charges have not yet been laid on this file.
The second call took place on July 2, 2016, after the Enhanced Policing Unit were on patrol on Highway 17 north of Lloydminster. A 2002 green Mazda Protégé (with Saskatchewan plate 944JMC) was stopped for provincial offences. As police approached the vehicle it fled north bound towards Alcurve, AB. At the time there were several vehicles on the highway and it was deemed too dangerous to pursue. Tips are being asked for in the case.
