A Fall Fall in Missoula Crime? Felony Cases At Just 15 This Week

Missoula County Attorney Kirsten Pabst says her office handled 15 felony cases this past week

“Four of those involved violent crimes: there was a Partner Family Member AssaultĀ  involving an alleged strangulation, an assault, a sexual intercourse without consent and a violation of an order of protection,” Pabst said. “There was one felony DUI.”

There were also a handful of property crimes.

“There was a theft, an identity theft, and a bad check case. A handful of drug cases involving methamphetamine, and then there were some administrative crimes: resisting arrest and obstructing a peace officer,” Pabst said. “Finally, there was a surreptitious visual observation, which is what we used to refer to as the ‘peeping tom statute.'”

Fall appears to have brought some relief for law enforcement and local courts. For the past two weeks, the number of felony cases has hovered around 15, which is quite a big dip after many weeks with case numbers in the upper 20s during the summer.
