LOTS OF TROUBLE
Police arrested a Butte woman for shoplifting at Walmart on Saturday, but she was in more legal trouble than that.
Chelsea Smith, 22, left the store early Saturday afternoon but was soon located at a nearby casino, police said. She had allegedly taken several items without paying, including a necklace, paint brush, birthday cards, Reese’s peanut butter cups and a Kit Kat bar.
She had a small amount of methamphetamine in a dollar bill so she was also booked for felony drug possession, and picked up a misdemeanor complaint, too, for having a glass pipe.
Police say she was also wanted on warrants out of Anaconda, one for failure to appear and a $50,000 warrant for violating release conditions. She was still in jail as of noon Monday.
RUCKUS AT NOODLE PARLOR
Police say a 28-year-old Butte man who was asked to leave the Pekin Noodle Parlor on South Main Street around 10 p.m. Sunday got angry and broke a window in the restaurant.
They said Skyler Criscuolo still had broken pieces of glass on his sweatshirt when officers arrived. They arrested him on a misdemeanor complaint of criminal mischief. He was later released after posting $585 in bail.
RIDE CUT SHORT
A man got behind the wheel of someone else’s 2002 Chevy Tracker as it was idling at the Town Pump at 531 South Montana Street and took off late Sunday night.
A call went out about the stolen vehicle and police quickly spotted it and arrested Aaron Stubbs, 28, of Butte, for felony auto theft. He was also booked for drug possession for having three narcotic pills on him, police said. He was still behind bars late Monday morning.
