Crime numbers in Missoula dropped this week compared to last week. County Attorney Jason Marks says his office handled a variety of cases.

“We filed 15 new cases this week,” Marks said. “I would say it was kind of a general mix, robbery, burglary, a couple stolen vehicles, the usual meth possession and a couple domestic violence cases.”

According to Marks, crimes against persons were down this week as well. These types of cases have occurred at an alarming rate the past few weeks. Marks says there were only five cases this week, which is a slight improvement.
