While on patrol at an Estevan Bruins hockey game Tuesday night, police officers were surprised when a concerned citizen handed them a baggie of drugs found at the city’s Affinity Place arena.
“It did test positive for cocaine, and it was reported to have been found on the floor in the lobby, just outside of the washrooms in the main portion of Affinity (Place),” Sergeant Tyler McMillan with Estevan Police Service told DiscoverEstevan.
Police are still investigating how the drugs got into the arena.
“It’s concerning that somebody would have that at a hockey game, a family event,” he added, “With the amount of kids running around there, thank goodness none of them picked it up and got into it.”
The substance was in a little plastic bag. It was outside the main washrooms on the lobby floor. Lots of kids running around the area which is cause for concern. EPS thanks the reporting person for locating it and making sure a child didnt pick it up. ^tm
