The holidays were a fairly quiet time for the Rosetown RCMP Detachment, who only had a few things to report for the two week period between December 20th and January 3rd.

On December 20th, at around 7:45 AM, members attended a single vehicle collision on the Ruthilda grid road. The vehicle was traveling eastbound when it started to fishtail and the driver was unable to gain control. The vehicle entered the ditch and rolled. The 24 year old driver from Saskatoon sustained minor injuries.

The same morning, at around 8:40 AM, the Rosetown Traffic Services Unit executed a warrant on behalf of the Saskatoon Police. Members had stopped the 24 year old man from Saskatoon during a traffic stop on Highway 7, east of Rosetown. The individual was released for Court in Saskatoon on January 15th, at the Saskatoon Police's request.

At 9:40 AM, there was a report of a break, enter and theft from an unoccupied farm on the Valley Center Road in the RM of Harris. Several outbuildings were rummaged through, with small items taken from the scene. The break-ins believed to have occurred around daybreak that morning and the suspects are believed to be driving a F250 or F350 truck.

The last item for December 20th was a hit and run in Rosetown. At 11:40 AM, the Detachment received a complaint of a hit and run on Herkimer Street. A 2004 red Saturn Ion, which was parked on the street, was hit sometime overnight.

On December 22nd, Detachment members, as well as members of the Traffic Services unit, attended a complaint of an abandoned vehicle and utility trailers in an unoccupied farm yard in the RM of Marriott. The two vehicles and two trailers turned out to be stolen. One vehicle was stolen from Elrose, while the other truck and trailers were taken from the Kindersley area. The investigation is ongoing.

There was another complaint of a break, enter and theft on December 23rd. Members were notified around 10:30 AM that day that a break, enter and theft occurred at a Rosetown towing company sometime overnight. Culprits broke into the building, via a window, and stole both trucks that had been recovered the night before. Both vehicles have since been recovered and a suspect has been identified with a warrant out for his arrest.

On December 30th, at 12:00 AM, there was a complaint of shoplifting from a local gas station. A 20 year old woman from Rosetown has since been charged with Theft Under $5000 and will make her first court appearance on February 14th in Rosetown Provincial Court.

On the 31st, at 11:36 PM, members were conducting a bark walk at a local drinking establishment. A 36 year old Rosetown man was found there, and was in breach of his undertaking by being in an establishment that served alcohol. The man was arrested and remanded for court in Saskatoon.

January 1st, at 5:29 PM, there was a single vehicle roll over on Highway 7 near Harris. Members of the Rosetown Detachment, the Fire Department and EMS all attended the scene. The vehicle was heading eastbound on Highway 7, when the rear end of the truck swung out, causing the driver to lose control. The vehicle entered the ditch and rolled several times. The driver was transported with undetermined injuries. Road conditions were a factor.

During the two week period, the Detachment also conducted 22 calls of assistance to the general public, 6 false alarm calls and 9 erratic driving complaints. 130 tickets were issued by the Detachment and Traffic Services.
