Missoula Crime Report – Drugs Dominate Once Again
The Missoula County Attorney’s Office filed 13 new criminal complaints this past week. County Attorney Kirsten Pabst says eight of those were drug cases.
“Two of those involved oxycodone pills,” Pabst said. “In one, the defendant allegedly possessed six bags of marijuana for what appeared to be for distribution. There were some oxycodone pills in a bottle and some cash. That defendant was allegedly posting videos that involved drugs and guns, which ultimately caught the attention of some probation folks.”
In addition, there were four cases involving heroin with the intent to distribute. Pabst says that was a large drug bust that involved very large quantities of heroin with potentially thousands of doses.
“We filed one partner or family member assault case and one endangerment crime,” Pabst said. “That was negligent endangerment plus reckless driving. In that case, the allegation involved a defendant who was in the car with kids and crashed the car after not taking seizure medication.”
Finally, there was one theft case, one obstructing a peace officer case and one fugitive from Idaho was charged.
