Stolen Vehicle Leads To Lost Flip Flops And A Stay In The Beaverhead County Jail

On 03/23/24 Montana Highway Patrol assisted a motorist right outside of Anaconda who had ran out of fuel. A short time later outside of Butte the same vehicle was pulled over by Highway Patrol where 3 passengers exited the vehicle and the driver fled and was not located. Around 11pm the car involved was reported as stolen. 

Around 2:30 in the morning on 03/24 one of the Beaverhead County Deputies located a car that had slid off the interstate near the North Interchange. The vehicle that was involved in the slide off was the same vehicle that was involved with Highway Patrol earlier. The driver had a felony nationwide extradition warrant out of Mississippi for parole violation, felon in possession of firearm. 

The driver then fled on foot into a field off of the interstate. Deputies, Dillon Police Officers, and Montana Highway Patrol responded and a search began. The male was subsequently arrested a short time later and the vehicle was seized, however his flip flops were never recovered. 

The male was booked into the Beaverhead County Detention Center on the warrant, and pending local charges. We would like to thank all the agencies involved for their helping hand.
