Missoula, MT (KGVO-AM News) - The Missoula County Attorney’s Office charged 21 new criminal complaints this week, which is five more than last week and higher than the weekly average. County Attorney Kirsten Pabst provided a report.
“Eight of those were in the violent crimes or crimes against persons category,” Pabst said. “Three were partner or family member assaults. There was a violation of an order of protection. We charged an assault on a peace officer in which a law enforcement officer was actually kicked. There was an altercation at the detention facility and another altercation at the Johnson Street Warming Shelter. We charged an individual with sexual abuse of children and another case involving an allegation of sexual intercourse without consent.”

“One was money laundering and two involved theft of vehicles,” Pabst said. “In one, the defendant was allegedly sleeping in a vehicle that was reported stolen out of Flathead County. We charged five new felony drug cases, a combination of meth, cocaine, and fentanyl.”
In one of the drug cases, a man was caught with approximately 3,600 doses of meth.
