Butte City Courts

  • Two Washington people suspected in an attempted armed robbery at a Butte restaurant July 19 were brought to the Butte Monday to face felony charges.

Jeffery Townsend, 35, and Danielle Nyholm, 27, had been in custody in Broadwater County on a suspicion of possession of stolen property, police said. The pair also are suspected in the attempted robbery of the Butte Subway Restaurant at 3301 Harrison Ave. in Butte around 8:30 p.m. July 19.

The two were trans- ported to Butte Monday by local detectives and appeared before Justice Court Judge Bob Lee for initial appearances on robbery charges.

Judge Lee set an Aug. 24 preliminary hearing in District Court and set bail at $10,000 apiece.

The charges stem from an attempted robbery at Subway in which a man armed with a handgun, and a woman accomplice, tried to rob the store. Two Subway employees on duty at the time locked themselves in a restroom, however, and called police.

The pair left the store without taking anything before police arrived.

The two robbery suspects were arrested later that evening by the Montana Highway Patrol south of Townsend. They were allegedly driving in a stolen pickup truck, police said.
