TWO ARRESTED FOR WARRANTS, DRUGS
Police went to a residence on the 1800 block of Howard Street early Thursday night knowing a man and woman wanted on outstanding warrants might be there with friends.
Sure enough, they spotted Frank Rueben Medina, 37, of Butte on the front porch, followed him inside, and arrested him. Halie Anne Dunne, 26, also of Butte, was hiding in the basement but came upstairs when officers called her out, police said.
Medina was wanted on a felony warrant out of District Court in Butte and two misdemeanor warrants from City Court. Dunne had a warrant from City Court and a felony warrant from Madison County.
Police said Medina had needles, baggies, and a small amount of meth, so he also was booked on a felony complaint of possessing dangerous drugs and a misdemeanor complaint of having drug paraphernalia. Dunn had a pipe, so she was also arrested for misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia.
Both were still in jail as of late Friday morning.
PUNCHED IN FACE
A Butte man was arrested around 4 p.m. Thursday for allegedly punching another man in the face.
The victim said he came home for a bite to eat, and as soon as he walked into his residence on the 1800 block of Florida Boulevard, Christopher Michael Alexander, 33, punched him in the face and the back.
Alexander was arrested for misdemeanor simple assault and was still behind bars late Friday morning with bond set at $585.
