Missoula Weekly Crime Report – Rape, Assault, Theft, and Drugs
The Missoula County Attorney’s Office filed 11 new criminal complaints this past week. County Attorney Kirsten Pabst says there were a variety of different charges. Three of those were violent crimes,” Pabst said. “One was an assault case. There was another sexual intercourse without consent case that we filed and an assault with a weapon. There were four property crimes and two theft cases. In one, the defendant was allegedly caught in possession of a stolen RV and in the other, the defendant was found with a stolen high-end mountain bike.”
According to Pabst, her office also filed a criminal mischief case.
“In that case, the suspect allegedly purposely bashed his head against the patrol vehicle, causing damages upwards of $800,” Pabst said. “There was one methamphetamine case. We actually charged possession with intent to distribute. In that particular case, there was a home visit by a probation officer who located 52 grams of meth in two separate bags.”
Pabst says her office also charged an identity theft case. The suspects were using other people’s information to get credit and phones from Verizon. Several citizens have been victimized by this and not all of the suspects have been identified. The Missoula Police Department continues to investigate that series of crimes.
