On Tuesday evening, Missoula police advised all law enforcement agencies to be on the lookout for a suspect in a vehicle who was believed to be involved in an armed robbery that had occurred Tuesday in Missoula.
Sheriff’s deputies encountered the suspect’s vehicle near the Town Pump in Bonner, and the suspect led sheriff’s deputies, city police and the Highway Patrol on a high speed chase on Highway 10 East, when law enforcement finally disabled the suspect’s vehicle near the Turah Exit of I-90.
